We have this every Thanksgiving at my husband's request. It's our spin on my mother-in-laws recipe. Hope you like it as much as we do!

This was a nice change from the typical jello for Thanksgiving. Nice and light-even better left over!

We grew up eating Jello Salad, and this is a great recipe. The only negative is that anytime Mandarin oranges are used, the salad gets watery. Other than that, there is a lot of flavor and textures in this salad. Thanks for the recipe!
