Mandarin Orange Jello Salad (or is it pudding?)

Another yummy recipe from my mother-in-law! This is made with orange jello and vanilla pudding, so you get both tastes. Your mouth will wonder if this is jello or pudding? Either way, it's addicting and delicious! You can also use a different flavor of jello. I've made it with strawberry-banana jello and it is good!

1 large package orange Jell-o 
3 C. water
1 large package Cook and Serve Vanilla pudding mix
2 small cans or 1 large can mandarin oranges, drained
1 pint whipping cream, whipped or 1 (8 oz.) Cool Whip

Stir together in a saucepan the pudding mix and water. Stir in the Jell-o and cook till slightly thickened. Place in a large bowl and refrigerate until thickened, but not set. Add whipped cream or Cool Whip. Fold in mandarin oranges. Refrigerate until set.

  1. Hi I hope you don't mind me reading your blog. I live here in Malad and found it from Mandi Ward's blog. I love all your old looking pictures you have decorated your blog with. I tried the zucchini casserole and will be making the laundry soap as soon as I round up enough bottles. I plan to try many more from your recipe collection. Thanks Penny Jacobsen

  2. I'm happy you found my blog! That's what it is for : ) I love comments too so thanks!

  3. I am confused by this salad...I hope I made it correctly....I made the pudding according to the box and then made the jello with the 2 cups of hot water...the pudding was made with 3 cups of milk...I folded the pudding into the jello and added the mandrin oranges...Is this correct

  4. You put the pudding mix and 3 c. water into a saucepan. Stir together and add in the package of jello. Stir till thickened but not boiling. Refrigerate until thicker but not set. Fold in whipped cream and oranges. Refrigerate until set. It's really not complicated. Try it again! You'll be so glad you did.

  5. What size boxes of jello and pudding mixes did you use?
