Orange Jello Salad

Don't be fooled by the name as I did. This is the time of the year when you have many get together with friends and families.  Orange jello salad is a very easy dessert to put together and everyone will enjoy it. I have no idea how this name of " salad" came for this dessert.
I made this for our thanksgiving party dinner and everyone liked it. This dessert can be made the day before you have a party.

  • Make the jello as per packet instructions. Let it set till halfway.

  • With a spatula or an electric whisk cream the cream cheese and sugar till fluffy.
  • Fold in the cool whip gently.
  • Add the jello, mandarin oranges and pineapple to the cream cheese mixture.

  • Cover and refrigerate over night.
  • Serve whenever you are a ready.
