Pistachio Fruit Fluff Salad

Teresa Ambra
Pistachio Fruit Fluff Salad is absolutely marvelous! This quick and easy fruit salad is made with marshmallows, bananas, fruit cocktail, mandarin oranges and pineapple in a creamy base with pistachio pudding mix. Terrific for company or holiday dinners, potlucks or summer backyard barbecues. Almost like eating dessert!
