Reviews forCreamy Orange Salad
"While the flower turned out really cute, I was not impressed with the taste of this dessert. It was much too sweet."
"This came out well, but I really did not enjoy the flavor. I expected something that tasted more fruity and refreshing, but this tasted so sickeningly sweet that I could not enjoy it very much. It was too creamy for my taste. I think it might taste better with mandarin oranges mixed in just to give it some real fruit flavor, but I do not think that I will be repeating this recipe."
"This recipe was awesome, when I made it everyone loved it !!! I used whip cream instead of cool whip . It worked the same as cool whip"
"This is always a big hit in our family. Yummy!"
"we love take it camping, and bbqs. I also add the mandarin oranges."
"I also added mandarin oranges, pineapple and a dash of vanilla to it. you can also make a layer or vanilla pudding and whipped topping and then layer the orange to make a dessert. its great no matter how you make it!!"
"I made this jello salad, only I put it in a 13-9-2 glass dish. Then when it was set up. I made more orange jello to put over the top of it, so the dish did not look so empty. I took it to my meeting and they loved it. you could even put more whipped topping over the orange jello! Claudine Dunlap, Beech Creek, Pa."
