Mandarin Orange Jello Salad tastes like an orange Dreamsicle. Bright citrus flavor with a creamy, mousse-like texture. A sweet addition to any meal.
Today I am sharing a longtime Family Favorite recipe – Tastes Like a Dreamsicle Mandarin Orange Jello Salad. My sister-in-law (Hi Cheryl!) shared this little gem with me many years ago.
My family loves this salad. A LOT! I can’t even begin to guess how many times I’ve made it over the years.
It’s a mainstay at most of our holiday and special occasion meals. And I’ve also prepared it for countless potlucks and parties.
And sometimes I make it “just because”. You know, those times when a family member requests something ever so nicely. It’s all about keeping your people happy, right?
Should I serve it as part of the meal or as a dessert?
This question has sparked many debates. Like similar Midwestern (and Southern) dishes, this jello salad with mandarin oranges is considered a salad. Perhaps there’s less guilt associated with eating something with “salad” in the name?
Let’s get to the recipe.
