What is Jello Salad?

 

  • This dessert salad fluff dish, which is loaded with pineapple and mandarin oranges, is akin to Watergate salad. It’s a delectable, creamy delight that works well as a dessert or a side dish. This recipe for the traditional orange jello salad was scribbled on an old piece of paper from a cookbook I discovered at an estate sale.

  • I wanted to share the recipe because I could tell it had been greatly enjoyed. This dish just requires six ingredients and five minutes of preparation time!

 

Ingredients Needed

  • Canned Mandarin Oranges: Just one can of mandarin oranges, and make sure to drain them well. I like to buy the kind that are packed in juice, not syrup. They also come in jars; just buy your favorite brand.

 

  • Crushed Pineapple: Drain the excess liquid off.

  • Orange Jello: Orange gelatin gives it the orange color and a strong orange flavor.

 

  • Cottage Cheese: The cottage cheese is a classic fluff ingredient and gives body to the recipe. Beware of using low or nonfat cottage cheese, as it has more liquid and the fluff will be soupier.

  • Cool Whip: This adds some sweetness, body, and creaminess to the recipe.

 

  • Mini Marshmallows: This is my favorite part of the recipe! I add marshmallows to all my fluff recipes.
