“A friend taught me to make this years ago - without a recipe. It is very quick and easy. The sweet, creamy salad is great as a cool, refreshing side dish or dessert.”

One container of cottage cheese is plenty for this salad. I like to triple the oranges in this salad and I add one bag of mini marshmallows to help soak up some of the "juice" that comes when this salad sits. My husband swore up and down that he didn't like "fluffy" salads until he tried this one and ate three bowls, back to back.



Great recipe! My mom makes this every year during the holidays. She also adds crushed pineapple, it makes it extra good!And, she puts some of the mandarin oranges on top!I actually made it this year and my kids can't wait to eat it.



Thanks for sharing, Linda. This salad is yummiest with apricot jello and some added crushed pineapple. Its quick and easy for buffets and church suppers if you need a last minute dish.
