This was delicious, and very easy to prepare. I always wanted the recipe for this, so now that I have it and it turned out so good, I will be making this again and again.

I made this for my husband over St. Patrick's Day because he loves pistachios. It was a hit. Thanks for the recipe. It's a bit like Watergate Salad but with coconut.

This was awesome! I couldn't stop eating it and DH absolutely loved it. In fact, we ate the whole thing in one day. Can you say "oink"?

Awesome! My family loved it this Christmas with dinner! Lusciously sweet, refreshingly tart, and very savory and as like I said before its intensely refreshing on a warm day ;)

Very quick and easy. I made this for our Easter lunch and it was a big hit. I'm not a fan of heavy desserts so this was perfect. Thank you!

This was wonderful....I used a 20oz can of crushed pineapple, omited the coconut and nuts and added marachino cherries.

This is great! For the pineapple I used a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple (drained) and 1 cup of chopped pecans instead of walnuts but kept everything else the same. Thanks! :)

Great recipe. I left out the crushed pineapple and added mandarin oranges and some leftover canned peaches. This disappeared quickly. This is easy to put together and great for a picnic.
