WONDERFUL FLAVOR!! Cool, soothing and almost taste like a dreamsycle! This salad has always been a hit at our family gatherings. Goes well with any entree. It makes a very pretty salad when served on a lettuce leaf. (Cooking time includes refrigerator time.)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Dissolve packages of orange gelatin mix in 2 cups of boiling water and stir well. Add 2 cups of cold water and stir.
  2. Place gelatin mixture in a medium size bowl and allow to get cold in refrigerator. When gelatin mixture is slightly beginning to set around edges of bowl (test frequently -- you do not want it to completely set) remove from refrigerator.
  3. With an electric mixer beat softened cream cheese in a separate bowl and add small amounts (starting with tablespoons full) of gelatin mixture while beating. This will insure the mixture to be smooth.
  4. By hand, stir in drained mandarin oranges and drained pineapple tidbits. Stir in mini marshmallows. (If you elect to use crushed pineapple, drain extremely well.).
  5. Pour into a 2 or 3 quart pyrex dish and place in refrigerator. Let mixture get completely cold for at least 6 hours before serving.
  6. Cut in squares and serve salad on lettuce leaf.
  7. Note: If you want more of an orange flavor, use 3 ounces of cream cheese.
  8. Enjoy!
