Mama's Orange Salad - Dee Dee's

Diane Atherton


This is another wonderful recipe that my mother would make for holiday gatherings.

I've been going through her recipes the last few days and it has brought back some good memories of sitting around her table with family during the holiday's, sharing stories of our youth.
