    There's lots of salad recipes that are more dessert than main course.
    Try Honeymoon Salad, Ambrosia, Fruit Salad with vanilla sauce ...... and so on.

    It comes from an expensive Hotel by that name who came up with the recipe. The only reason we associate it with president Nixon is because of a coverup that happened during his presidency at this Hotel that caused him to be impeached.

    My family calls it "the green stuff" and I am now required (since my mom's passing) to bring this to every family function. I wonder if my poor son will be bringing it once I'm gone???? LOL

    Running is the best exercises because it helps you get rid of the calorie consumption,
    Walking, Running and adding mountains or an slant burns up up 180 calorie consumption in 30 minutes....

    Love this, but never heard it called 'Watergate.' I grew up knowing it as 'Pistachio Salad.'
