Orange Buttermilk Gelatin Salad Mold Recipe
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!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:12-16 servings
- 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 package (6 ounces) orange gelatin
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- 1. In a saucepan, combine pineapple and sugar; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. When mixture boils, immediately add gelatin and stir until dissolved. Cool slightly. Stir in buttermilk. Chill until partially set. Fold in whipped topping and nuts. If necessary, chill until mixture mounds slightly. Pour into a lightly oiled 8-1/2-cup mold. Chill overnight. Yield: 12-16 servings.
