I love this! My mother-in-law introduced it to me and it's a family favorite. We just mix everything together in one bowl, chill, and serve. I usually use sugar-free jello, fat-free cool whip and cottage cheese, and it's nearly as good without the guilt. I've seen a couple of comments about the gelatin... you DO NOT make the jello, you just mix the packet in. Enjoy!


This salad was ok tasting but the cottage cheese gave it a weird texture. I have found another recipe that had the taste I was expecting with a light and fluffy texture. ORANGE MANDARIN SALAD 1 lg. box orange Jello, 1 (6 oz.) can mandarin oranges,drain, save juice 1 c. Cool Whip. Prepare Jello using basic directions on box. Use mandarin juice for some of the water. Put in bowl deep enough to use electric mixer. Chill until partially jelled. Beat with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add mandarin oranges and Cool Whip. Chill and serve.


Yummy salad, Susie. I have made this several times, using different flavors of gelatin and fruit. I have never tasted a bad combination. So experiment to find your favorites. I do cut back on the Cool Whip by about one-fourth. A little too sweet if the whole amount is used. Thanks for sharing :)
