Every Sunday, our Mom would make some sort of jello as a side dish to our delicious dinner.  It was usually my favorite part of the meal!  This recipe was one of our favorites growing up, and now my little family eats it right up.  Plus, it makes a lot so it is a great side dish for parties or big dinners!

This dish is tasty enough to be a side dish or dessert!

1 large package Cook and Serve vanilla pudding (4.6 ounces)

1/2 bag mini marshmallows
20 ounce can pineapple tidbits (drained)
22 ounces mandarin oranges (drained)

    Wow! So coincidental that you should post the Orange Fluff Jello salad. I made something very similar to this but used orange sherbet as an added ingredient,mandarin oranges,pineapple tidbits, and maraschino cherries.I am falling in love all over again with these kinds of salads. I remember as a youth enjoying salads like this from buffet type restaurants and thought they were the best thing on the menu. I cannot go without serving one to my guests now. Thanks for posting this!~

      Yes that’s called Watergate salad and it has nuts in it, I think pecans. That’s my very favorite. But this one is good
