Stirring the Pot - Orange Salad
I promised this recipe a few weeks ago. I love this orange salad. My granny made it every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. It's sweet, delicious, light, and scrumptious.
Grandma G's Orange Salad
1 pkg orange jello
1 pkg regular vanilla pudding (not instant)
1 pkg tapioca pudding
1 sm can drained mandarin oranges (reserve juice)
3 cups water (use some of the reserved juice to account for part of the water)
1 8 oz container cool whip
Combine the jello and pudding mixes in a small sauce pan. Add the reserved juice plus enough water to equal 3 cups. Bring to a boil. Remove and cool. Blend in the orange segments. Gently fold in the cool whip. Refrigerate.
Note: This recipe uses the small size packages of jello and pudding. If you use the large packages, double the water and oranges. Then use a larger container of cool whip.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting. I hope you enjoy this delicious "salad" (desert) as much as my family has enjoyed it.
Peace and Joy,
