"It seems odd to me this is actually a vintage recipe. After all, Watergate salad was something I ate at family gatherings when I was a child, reminiscent of Ambrosia Salad which is also deemed a vintage recipe, always on our holiday table as well. I think it’s probably safe to say that just about everyone has tried this pistachio pudding salad recipe at least once. Maybe you’ve adapted it, changed the ingredients around a bit. Added more of this or taken out some of that. Some people don’t like the coconut, others want fresh fruit instead of canned, or maybe you prefer fresh whipped cream over Cool Whip."
