Orange Buttermilk Gelatin Salad Mold

 Orange Buttermilk Gelatin Salad Mold
A dear friend shared this recipe with me years ago. Now it's my favorite dish to take to a church meeting, shower or any potluck event—it's always a hit. Whenever I serve this salad, people ask for the recipe. They find it hard to believe it's really made with buttermilk!
