    My sister and I grew up in the 60's. We have been looking for an orange Jello mold with a cream layer and has mandarin oranges in it. I an very excited to see this recipe of the retro Jello recipes.

    My mom made this but without the pineapple and water. Her recipe said to use a can of grapefruit and the juice plus maybe a little water to make the 1 cup. Very orangey and refreshing. Especially in summer.

    My family really enjoyed this salad, even the ones who say they don't usually like gelatin. It is very orangey!
