Orange Tapioca Salad

Christine Whisenhunt


My mother-in-law made this the last time we visited. I HAD to have the recipe. This is SO good! It tastes just like a half and half bar!!! (YAY! Yummy, yummy, yummy! One of my fave flavors. Can you tell??!?!! LOL) It is so yummy I thought I would share it with all of you. Enjoy!

Note: I tried adding mini marshmallows to this, as I LOVE watergate salad, and I love the texture and flavor of the marshmallows in that, BUT it completely changed the texture and flavor of this. I DON'T recommend it!
