Salads and Sides

Orange Jell-O Salad

This is a great dish during the hot summer, as a welcome-to-the-neighborhood gift, or just a refreshing and light dessert on a hot summer night.

1 small Orange Jell-O
1 can Mandarin Oranges, drained
1 8-oz. package Cottage Cheese
1 12-oz tub Cool Whip (fat free works great as well)

Drain oranges and then mash them.

Prepare Jell-O per package directions and cool to where it is just starting to thicken. If you do not cool Jell-O properly, this dish will FAIL!

Fold into the Jell-O the cottage cheese, cool whip and oranges.

Chill at least 4 hours or overnight.

Serve and enjoy.
