|Here are your ingredients plus water!|
Don't you love how we call this a Jello "Salad"? Honestly there are no salad ingredients anywhere to be found in this recipe. But it is easy and delicious! This will feed a large group and it cuts easily into perfect squares. Try taking this to your summer parties and cookouts and have everyone ask you for the recipe. That is what always happens when I make this. I originally found this on Six Sisters Stuff and added the fruit to the recipe. And if your family does not care for Orange Jello, see the note below. There are lots of varieties you can make from the original recipe!
|Yummy Orange Sherbet Jello Salad!|
6 ounce package of Orange Jello (this is the large box or use 2 small boxes)
8 ounce container of Cool Whip (you can use regular or "light" Cool Whip)
1 pint of Orange Sherbet, softened
1 cup of water
1 can of Mandarin Oranges, dice the oranges into smaller pieces
Boil the water. Add the water to the Orange Jello and stir until well mixed. Set the jello aside to cool but do not allow to gel. In a separate bowl, combine the Cool Whip and Orange Sherbet completely. Whip the jello into the Cool Whip/Orange Sherbet. Add the Mandarin Oranges to the jello mixture. Pour into a 9" x 13" pan or 8" x 11" pan and cover. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. Cut into squares and serve.

Here is how you can change it up: If you don't care for Orange Jello, just switch up the recipe. How about Strawberry Jello with a pint of Vanilla Ice Cream and Cool Whip and a pint of cut up Strawberries? Or Peach Jello with a pint of Vanilla Ice Cream and Cool Whip and a can of cut up Peaches? There are many combinations you can make from this basic recipe. I hope you enjoy!
