Creamy Mandarin Orange Salad

My mom made this recipe when I was a little girl and I loved it. The other day someone mentioned a recipe similar to it and I realized I hadn't made this one in a long time, so I went out and bought the ingredients and ate the whole thing in a day! :) Enjoy.

8 oz. tub of Cool Whip
22 oz. tub of small curb cottage cheese
24.5 oz. jar of Mandarin Oranges
3 oz. packet Orange Jello (optional) - I didn't use it for the recipe pictured, but my cousin recommends it

Combine all ingredients and store covered in the refrigerator.


  1. We make this every other weekend all summer for the lake...but we add pineapple! try it sometime!

    1. I've heard it's good with pineapple, too. My aunt likes to put walnuts in it, as well. It's a very versatile recipe.

  2. Somehow, I want to add miniature marshmallows!

    1. My sister-in-law and I were talking about this recipe and she said: "It would be good with Keebler Striped Cookies!" and I said: "Or Snickers!" It would turn a relatively healthy recipe into something much different! Marshmallows would be good, too. :)
