Fluffy Orange Jello Salad

May 4, 2014

1 Fluffy Orange Jello Salad (18)

This is such a refreshing jello salad.  It would be great as a side to any meal but especially a summer barbecue.   This recipe is similar to the one that has cottage cheese in it but it doesn’t, which gives it a great smooth texture.  Oranges are listed in these ingredients but any fruit can be used.  Just make sure that you match up your fruit with the correct flavor of jello.  My friend, Kellee shared this recipe with me and she loves it with raspberries!  I’ll have to try that next time.

NOTE:  This recipe must be made the day before so it has time to set completely!! 

1 Fluffy Orange Jello Salad (3)

1 large orange jello

1 small instant vanilla pudding

Mix jello and pudding together.

037 (2)

Add 2 cups boiling water.  Stir until dissolved.

1 Fluffy Orange Jello Salad (2)

2 cans mandarin oranges – drain, saving the juice

Add enough water and the reserved juice to make 2 cups.  Add to jello/pudding mix.

Chill until slightly thickened – syrupy consistency.  This takes about 1 1/2 hours.  (I have put it in the freezer to speed this process).
