Watergate Salad ~ Classic dessert that still pleases!

Old Fashioned Watergate Salad

I decided at the last minute to make a dessert/salad to add to our Easter dinner table spread.  I wanted to make a little something that would remind me of Grandma Bunni & making recipes that she used to make is always the way I like to remember her.  I decided that the pastel color & light, fresh taste of her Watergate Salad was just the thing make.  Lucky for me I usually have all the things needed to make it.  It's perfect for today's Easter meal & it also makes a great dish to bring to a potluck, too.  I can hardly keep J out of it, he just loves it!  Good thing we are eating in a couple of hours.  :)    Happy Easter!
