Orange Dreamsicle Salad

Orange dessert salad

But this is a sweet salad. Not to be confused with a plate-of-greens-and-veggies salad. 

And it always (always!) sparks a debate as to when to serve the dish. Should you serve it as part of the meal? Or serve it as a dessert? 

Traditionally we’ve served it as part of the meal. But you can be a rebel and serve it as a dessert if that’s how you want to roll.

Let’s get to the recipe.

1 box orange Jell-O
1 box instant vanilla pudding
