This was a HIT at Thanksgiving. We were having 19 people and one was diabetic. I wanted to do something that would taste good that he could eat too. Everyone LOVED it. It was also very easy. I mistakenly did not get enough mandarin oranges(got the ones sweetened with splenda). I added a little more pineapple(in unsweetened juice). Next time I will get more oranges and put them on the top too to make it look prettier. The color was wonderful though.

I love these sorts of things, especially in the heat of summer! I used the sugar free jello and light cream cheese & coolwhip. I had two large cans of mandarin oranges and assumed that's what was called for. As I was looking at the mix I thought "mini marshmallows" and so I threw in a few handful of those. This was a nice dinner side dish and will be enjoyed as a treat here for a few days. Thanks!

I was so happy to find this recipe, it is one of my family favorites and some how I misplaced the recipe. I like to serve this with my Chicken Caesar Salad #78140

This is absolutely delicious! I accidently bought chunk pineapple instead of crushed but it was still tasty. I could see where it would be better with the crushed. Also, remember to soften the cream cheese. I was in a hurry and forgot to soften it and despite whipping it for a long time there were tiny bits of unblended cream cheese. And finally, I put it in a casserole dish and served it with a spoon (like you would serve pudding). The presentation would be prettier served in a cake pan type pan and cut into squares to serve. Despite all of my "oops", it was gobbled up!!

This is the best ever. I have made this salad for everyone party I have gone to since I found the recipe. Hands down it's the first thing gone and my family fights over the last serving. I have handed this recipe out to the many who have tried it. Thank you!! I make it with regular orange jello and mix everything in the electric mixer, the texture is better.

I made this salad for a Christmas party and it was a hit! I made it using the sugar free jello, low-fat cream cheese and Cool Whip free. Instead of canned mandarin oranges, I used fresh Satsuma tangarines because I was given a bunch of them and needed to use them. I also added about a tablespoon of grated tangerine peel which I mixed in with the cream cheese. I served it in a large colorful bowl and it jelled up nicely after 2 hours in the fridge. Delightful orange flavors! Definitely a keeper and I'll probably be making it again for my family's holiday dinner. Thanks Edward!
