Pistachio “Watergate” Salad


You know them.  Those big bowls of mystery ingredients that sit on summer BBQ potluck tables.  They call themselves “salads.”  These retro salads have been around for a long time and guess what?  People LOVE them.  I decided to give some retro salads a bit of a makeover.  I know people love them so I just gave them a fresh look with a few changes!
