Or whatever is cooking on the grill!

My children are crazy about this dish. They like little marshmallows and whipped cream-who doesn’t? ? I like the taste combination of pineapple and pistachio. It is tropical, but also classic. It has a fun green color that your child will think it is fun. I don’t think you will eat a salad with marshmallows.

Quickly defrost cool whip: The cool whip should be thawed in the refrigerator for about 4 hours.

  • If you accidentally forget to defrost, you can use many different methods. You can leave it on the counter for up to 2 hours. The texture may not be as good, but it is faster than waiting in the refrigerator.
  • Another method is to use the defrost button on the microwave: defrost for 30 seconds and then stir, put in the refrigerator for 2-3 minutes and repeat until it has the right texture.
  • The last method involves a large bowl of cold water. Let the cool whip container float in the water for 30-40 minutes before it is ready to use.


  • The longer this salad is left around, the more likely the cold whip will melt. In order to avoid this, I suggest not to leave it at room temperature for a long time, not even more than 30 minutes.
  • Drain the pineapple and pat dry to prevent it from adding too much liquid to the salad.
  • Make sure you use instant pudding
  • To get a fluffy texture, make sure to fold the cool whip and don’t crush all the air.

Shop Cover tightly with plastic wrap or store in an airtight container. This salad can only be kept for about 3-4 days, because sometimes the water in the pineapple likes to seep out and separate the cool whip by adding more water to the salad.
