I used half the whipped topping, omitted the bananas, added grapes, and used pineapple chunks instead of crushed pineapple. It was delicious and just like the one my grandma used to make. Definitely a keeper for future family get togethers!!!



I served this with Easter dinner and everybody had seconds. I used an 8 oz. container of Cool Whip instead of the 16 oz. It was perfect consistency. Also I wasn't sure if I was supposed to drain the oranges or not so I played it safe and drained them.



This was really yummy! If you add a small box of orange jello mix, it gives it a tint of orange color and a good flavor!
