"In my family, we have this every time there's any type of get-together. The large bowl is always finished off and finally I asked my great Aunt how she does it. Here's her secret!" — Bwendler

2 (8 ounce) containers
whipped topping (such as Cool Whip®)
1 (20 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, most of juice drained
1/2 (16 ounce) package
miniature marshmallows, or more as needed
1 (4 ounce) jar
maraschino cherries, drained
2 (3 ounce) packages
instant pistachio pudding mix
Loved this recipe. Halved it as it was only for 3 of us. I omitted the cherries as I didn't have them on hand (the recipe says optional so I don't feel too bad about tweaking that part, lol.) The only thing was I felt it needed a little more pineapple for the amount of Cool Whip & pudding mix. This would be perfect for a baby shower or party. Next time I will half everything but the pineapple and see how that turns out :)
When I make this, I used one container Cool Whip, one package instant pistachio pudding and one full package mini marshmallows. It's one of my favorite holiday fluffy salads.
My family loves this dessert! It has become a favorite request. Will make it many more times!! Thanks!
