This is great to serve for a holiday sidedish.Its easy and it tastes so good! We love it! I toss the bananas in a little lemon juice to keep them from turning brown otherwise don't change a thing. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. :)

you just brought back a thousand memories of the church-lady potlucks I went to with grandma as a little girl! This stuff without the bananas ("pistachio fluff" in Bellevue, Ohio) was always my favorite! Thanks for the recipe!!!

This is exactly the recipe that my grandma has made for years at all our family dinners, it has always been a family favorite dish. My uncle always requests it, and I love it too, my brother and I when we were kids used to try to get a scoop with the cherry in it. It's just not a family dinner without a big bowl of fluffy Watergate Salad.

Yummy! I made this for a St. Pat's day party and it was such a hit. It was the only dessert that completely went. I debated about putting in the nuts, but I'm so glad I did, they gave it a nice crunch/texture. DH has requested I make this at home for us to enjoy by ourselves. Thanks for posting.

Made this as a dessert for Christmas. Everyone loved it. I used lite cool whip, and it still worked out well. Very yummy!

Thanks for the recipe; I made it for St. Patricks. Instead of using pistachio pudding I used vanilla and then in order to make it green I colored the Cool Whip. My mom didn't want maraschino cherries so I substituted the only other fruit we had which was strawberries. It gave it a different texture and taste but still tasted fine. The only thing I might change is less nuts because that created a crunch where one thought the salad would be soft and smooth. So with less it would give it a different texture and probably wouldn't alter the taste too much.
