I CAN remember looking forward to eating this pretty salad when I was a child. It has all the ingredients a child would like. My Grandmother served it during the holidays and on other special occasions and my Mother did the same.


  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) orange gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 pint orange or pineapple sherbet
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add sherbet; stir until smooth. Stir in the oranges, pineapple and marshmallows. Fold in whipped cream.
  2. Pour into a 6-cup serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until set.
