When I make a few sides a head of time for a busy week it saves so much time. I would say money because then I have no excuse not to “make” dinner. This easy pistachio whipped salad recipe is one of those sides. Some people refer to it as pistachio fluff, either way it is delicious and this is how I make mine. P.S. Mom if you are reading this recipe post, STOP!
What you will need for this Easy Pistachio Whipped Salad Recipe:
1 tub of Cool whip
1 can, drained of pineapple chunks
1/2 cup of pistachio nuts, chopped
1 tub of cottage cheese
1 packet of pistachio Jell-O mix
Into a mixing bowl mix all of the ingredients minus the cool whip. I like to mix those first because I never remember to take my cool whip out and it always needs to thaw just a tad longer. I also chop my pistachios a bit small and ad a few regular sized nuts for texture. Just our preference you do what you want. Then i fold in the cool whip and cover. Place in your fridge for 1-2 hours.
I always put this as a dinner side but you can make this for holidays or parties as well. This would make a great addition to a sporting events you name it. Need more side recipes or dessert ideas, this website has them all.
