Watergate Salad

I really like this fruity Jell-o salad. It makes a nice side dish for a pot luck or even a dessert. Why is it called "Watergate Salad?" If you're curious, here's a link. I always use sugar-free pudding and lite or fat-free Cool Whip to save a few carbs and calories and you can't even tell the difference...

1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
1 (3.4 oz.) pkg. Pistachio flavor instant pudding mix (I use sugar-free)
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1-1/2 cups thawed Cool Whip whipped topping (I use Lite)

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl until well-blended. Gently fold in Cool Whip. Transfer to a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Garnish with additional Cool Whip and pecans, if desired.  Makes 8 half cup servings. Easy to double!
