I have lost my recipe for Watergate salad. I really would like to have another since I have just found Jello's sugar free Pistacho pudding mix. If you or any of your viewers could help me I would be so happy. Thanks,


Chef Andy's recipe archives have failed him, but his readers have come through! Within twenty-four hours of posting your query here, he received two distinct recipes for Watergate salad! (Oddly enough, a third email arrived, but turned out to be nothing but a uuencoded audio file containing fourteen minutes of silence. :^)

Not sure that this recipe is called "Watergate Salad" or not, did not have a
