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.

      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.

      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.
