Orange jello salad aka Orange Dreamsicle salad
Some friends at church have dubbed this the Orange dreamsicle salad. Think the bars you buy in the ice cream section.
The original recipe says to mash up the fruit first. I don't I kinda of like it lumpy and taste the fruit.I add vanilla and orange extract for flavor, not a requirement, won't affect end results;yes yummier to this cook.I top it with marshmallows, you can also do coconuts on top. Another thing to do with this desert is cut up the marshmallows and add it in when you blend the fruit
