Muriel's Orange Jello Dessert

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Sharon in Ontario.

Muriel is one the the ladies at our Church. She brings this to all our pot lucks. I find it to be very, very refreshing after eating all the heavier sweets. It's like a breath of fresh air!

I found this to be very good with a great citrus flavor. Instead of the frozen orange juice, I used a can of orange-pineapple juice, and I also used crushed pineapple instead of the tidbits. Very Good!
