Watergate Salad Just Got More Colorful

Watergate Salad is another recipe I like to serve with my Unforgettable Sweet & Savory Pork or Beef Ribs, Ladies Auxiliary Coleslaw with Raisins and Carrots, and Easy Baked Beans With A Secret Ingredient. It is an attractive side dish, a mound of green fluff that always draws a lot of attention and rave reviews. Of course, I can never leave a recipe alone. By substituting the colored, fruit-flavored mini marshmallows, the recipe makes a very attractive holiday side dish. See for yourself whether you like the Kraft Jet-Puffed Fun Mallows as a substitute for the plain old white ones the next time you plan your holiday party menu.

Adrienne, the recipe was named for the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C. where the infamous "Watergate Break-in" took place in the 70's which lead to President Nixon's resignation.

Shellreeser, my mother-in-law always served this at holiday get-togethers. When the FunMallows came on the market I decided to give them a try. Works the same, just is fruity.
