This recipe is the easiest salad EVER! This is a recipe even my 4 year old grand-daughter could help make. Need I say more? No one really knows why they call it Watergate Salad, I tried to look it up and with all the guesses on the internet I just decided it didn’t matter anyway.
I thought everyone had tasted and loved this salad, but the teenagers at the Dairy Keen tell me they have never eaten this. When I tried to tell them about Watergate and President Nixon their eyes glazed over and then they told me they had to get back to making shakes.
