Reviews for Orange Tapioca Salad
"I had the chance to make this salad just this past month and I'd used the tapioca pudding mix which was just "Cook & Serve". I simply followed this recipe as it was presented and it worked out very well! This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thank you for sharing!delowenstein"

"I make this all the time! It is delicious and versatile! It is enough to fill 2 graham cracker pie crusts; perfect for the holidays! Change the flavor by using different flavors of jello and corresponding fruit! (This recipe does not call for instant tapioca) A family favorite!"
"Sodium total seems very low; 1 pkg of 1 oz vanilla instant has 300 mg; your recipe claims a total of 142 mg. I didn't use the whipped cream to save calories. Need clarification if the jello pudding are sugar free?"

"This is GREAT! Am asked for the recipe every time I take it to a gathering. Wouldn't change a thing!"
