This is a different version of Ambrosia with a touch of the green for St. Patty's Day. A hand me down recipe from a company pot luck. Cook time is time needed for chilling.


  1. In medium bowl mix together both cans of pineapple.
  2. Sprinkle pudding mix over pineapple and let sit about 3 minutes.
  3. Add nuts and coconut.
  4. Blend in whip topping and marshmallows, combining well.
  5. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.

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"?
