Haven't seen this recipe in print for quite awhile. Sometimes I wonder why it is named "salad" because it tastes more like a dessert. To cut back on the sweetness suggest you use unsweetened manarins and add 2 tbls. fresh lemon juice to the jello. Does make a difference.

I have been looking for a salad like this for months now! This was was ALMOST exactly what I wanted... it was just a little sweet for me. Very refreshing and made for a great light snack or dessert. I loved the flavor of the orange jello with the marshmallows... the crunch of the walnuts really gave the salad some texture. Loved it, but I will try tweaking it to see if I can reduce the sweetness just a tad! Thanks so much for sharing!

Made on several occasions and always a hit.I do leave out the walnuts however.
