I have made this many times. An old-fashioned molded gelatin salad with the unusual and tasty combination of orange gelatin, pineapple, cream cheese, pimento, celery, walnuts, etc. This particular recipe doesn't call for marshmallows, but you could always add some if you like.

This really is great! I tried it with green gelatin and used my bundt cake pan, and of course it looks "just like" a Christmas wreath. Great for the holidays!

This is exactly what I was looking for- a jello salad that was sweet with a crunch. Very much like the salads I remember having at my Grandmother's and other relatives in Minnesota. I used lime jello instead and it was great-

I was afraid that I would be unable to get this out of the mold because I didn't spray with Pam first. It came out beautifully and was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written.
