While there appears to be a huge variety of Orange Delight salads out there, I have yet to run across one made exactly the way we make it in our home. My mom received the recipe from a co-worker probably 40+ years ago. Even after a heavy meal, this is a really refreshing dessert. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

How to Make Orange Delight Jello Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. For jello mixture:

    Bring water to a boil, add Jell-O, stirring until clear. Remove from heat. Add frozen orange juice concentrate and stir until melted. Stir in mandarin oranges and pineapple. Pour into an 11 x 7 dish and refrigerate overnight or until the jello mixture has completely set.
  2. For Topping:

    Mix pudding with milk until it starts to set up. Be sure to use only 1 cup of milk, as listed in the ingredients. You don't want to make actual pudding. Fold in Cool Whip and spread over top of jello mixture.
  3. Optional:

    Put mandarin orange slices on top for color. Add crushed pecans for added texture, color, etc.
