Orange Fluff Salad
Delicious, creamy orange fluff salad with a pineapple twist! We call this Dreamsicle jello salad because it tastes like a creamsicle popsicle. The pineapple gives it a tropical hint without taking over all the traditional orange fluff salad flavor you would expect from the mandarin oranges.
Servings: 8 Servings
- 1 box orange Jell-O (3oz) any brand
- 1 pint cottage cheese optional see note
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 tub Cool Whip (8oz) any brand
- 2 cans mandarin oranges (11oz each) drained (11oz each)
- 1 cup pineapple tidbits drained
- sweetened flaked coconut to garnish, if desired
Mix the Jell-O powder and cottage cheese together until fully combined. Stir in marshmallows.
Fold in Cool Whip.
Gently fold in mandarin oranges and pineapple tidbits, taking care not to break them.
Serve in individual dishes or in a bowl.
Garnish with coconut if desired
Cottage Cheese: My husband doesn't care for cottage cheese in his so I leave it out. The dish is actually amazing that way but you get fewer servings so you might want to make a double batch! I consider it an optional ingredient depending on if you want tradition or "wild".
