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,

Psalm 29:11 (NKJV)  The LORD will give strength to His people; The LORD will bless His people with peace.

I have not had this particular recipe before but it sounds so good. We keep cans of Mandarin oranges on hand for snacks. Thanks for sharing the family recipe and Merry Christmas Susan!

That does sound good! My SIL makes one with cottage cheese that's also pretty good.
