I know there is an interesting (and probably funny) story behind this Watergate Salad recipe, but I don’t know what it is.
All I know is that it’s delicious!
The name says “salad” but it is a wonderful and easy dessert, sweet with pineapple, coconut and raisins.
Easy, easy, easy and delicious!
This delicious recipe is great as part of a buffet, as a take along to any pot luck, or an easy mid-week dessert for the family.
It’s always appreciated and it always disappears.
