    For everyone wondering about how to mix it up - Put the DRY pudding mix in with the whipped topping. Some pineapple juice may be necessary to get the correct consistency. You want it to be thick, but spreadable. - 5/4/09

    I never drain the pineapple and i dont know why it says to. its actually needed liquid and helps the pie to "set up". Folks...use the juice!!!

    You can vary this recipe using fat free orange jello, lowfat cottage cheese with drained mandrin oranges instead of the pistachio & pineapple(tastes better than it sounds!) or use lowfat choclate pudding with no fruit. - 3/1/09

    I have done this before and I do it for Valentine's Day too but use strawberry cool whip, strawberry gelatin and frozen strawberries. But I do mine in a cake pan and make my own crust with graham cracker crumbs. Very Good. - 2/1/09

    Your recipe calorie count is inaccurate by about 100 calories per serving because you don't add the whole graham cracker crust, you add 1 serving of crust to the whole recipe. You also do not specify that you used sugar free pudding. - 7/23/09

    I have done this recipe as a salad at Christmas, but I don't drain the pineapple. Sounds good as a pie, I'll try it. We don't have Cool Whip or pistachio pudding in Norway. I use creme fraiche and bring the pudding mix back when I visit the states. They think it is something exotic here! shhhhh.. :) - 2/8/09

    I think the pineapple is supposed to be flecks of gold. I would like to try it with mandarin oranges too since it would be even more golden. I make my own crust and like this much better than the mix with marshmallows (too sweet). Thanks to all for the variations too. I will try the Valentines one. - 2/18/09

    You can add about 1/2 cup halved green grapes to the pistachio salad/cool whip/pineapple mix. Tastes very good. My family also eats this without the crust, just as a salad and it's a fav! - 10/11/09

    I love watergate salad and sometimes add sliced banana to it. You could also add a sliced banana to this recipe or just use banana in place of the pineapple (for the person who is allergic to pineapple). I meant to add the banana today but forgot. I already have it chilling in the fridge. - 10/11/09
