This jello salad is perfect for any potluck or family get-together. I made it for our Easter picnic last Saturday thinking that we could have some for dinner on Sunday too, but it was gone in a flash.
Mandarin Orange Jello Salad
recipe from my sweet mom
1 lg. pkg orange jello
2 c. hot water
1 sm. can frozen orange juice concentrate (or if you can't find a small can, just use half of a normal size can)
1 pkg. Dream Whip
1 sm. can mandarin oranges
Dissolve jello in hot water. Add orange juice concentrate. Let set in fridge until partially firm.
Prepare the Dream Whip according to package directions in mixer. Add the partially-set jello mixture and mix. (If you let the jello set too long like I always do, don't worry, just mix it up really well.).
Fold in the oranges. Pour into serving bowl or jello pan and let set in fridge until firm.
