Watergate Salad

Welcome to Daisy Farm Kitchen! I was looking through my Grandma Anna Vee’s recipe book and saw Watergate Salad.

I found the name interesting and did some research. Apparently the recipe was originally called Pistachio Delight.

I came across one theory suggesting that the salad name changed to Watergate because the Watergate scandal happened around that time. 

I love how this recipe has very few ingredients and whips up quick. I think the Watergate Salad makes a good side dish or dessert for a gathering.

Also, it is green, which means it is a perfect fit for St. Patricks Day which is less than 2 weeks away!

Thanks for stopping by!

Xo, Annie
