The Junior League of Jackson, Mississippi published this recipe nearly 30 years ago. It can easily be doubled and makes a pretty presentation in a ring mold.

I have made this salad many ways and actually like it without the topping as I don't like mayo...but that is just me. I also add a small can of mandarin oranges or diced peaches to the jello mixture. Either way, a delicious dessert that more people should discover!

  1. Mix the orange juice and jello in a sauce pan.
  2. and heat to boiling.Cool and then add the buttermilk.

  6. Serve the salad with a dollop of the mayo/sour cream mixture. You may want to.
  7. "frost" the top of the salad with this mix if not placing in a mold.
