I can't remember a get-together in our family without this salad! Great as written, but feel free to mix up the sherbet, Jell-O, and fruit combinations to your liking. Prep time does not include chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (6 ounce) box orange Jell-O
  • 2 (11 ounce) cans mandarin oranges (drained and juice reserved)
  • 1 pint Orange sherbet
  • water


  1. Drain juices from the mandarin oranges.
  2. Add water to the juice to make 2 cups.
  3. Heat to boiling in a medium saucepan.
  4. Add Jell-O, dissolve completely, and turn heat to low.
  5. Add sherbet and continue stirring constantly, until melted and incorporated into the Jell-O. Mixture should be opaque.
  6. Carefully pour into a Jell-O mold, bundt pan, or large enough bowl sprayed with a bit of non-stick spray.
  7. Add drained oranges to the Jell-O mixuture.
  8. Cover and refrigerate until set, preferably overnight.
  9. ***NOTE- if you prefer the oranges to be distributed more throughout the salad, let the mixture chill a bit before adding the oranges.
