"A refreshing chilled salad with orange gelatin, pineapple, buttermilk, and whipped topping." — Diane A.
Watch video tips and tricks
1 (20 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, undrained
1 (6 ounce) package
orange flavored Jell-O®
1 (8 ounce) container
frozen whipped topping, thawed
This is an excellent recipe. I use lowfat buttermilk to reduce the fat , omit the sugar and use sugarfree jello to cut the calories. I add 2 cans of drained mandarin oranges and occasionally change the flavor of the gelatin. My family loves it made with lime, lemon or pineapple also. YUMMY! No one suspects it is buttermilk giving it the rich texture and flavor.
This was ok. It was not the normal jello salad. I liked how the jello set up with the buttermilk in it, that was pretty. But it was ok, nobody raved about it.
Just for fun I poured mixture into empty orange halfs and garnished each top with 2 manderine orange slices and mint leaf.Makes nice individual servings when you have a large gathering!
I make this often, only substituting two cans of drained mandarin oranges. I call it Creamsicle Salad. I always get requests for the recipe. My dad fell in love with it and started making it for friends and family gatherings and all the people who try it fight over the leftovers! EDITED LATER: Oh. And I forgot. I add a bag of mini marshmallows, too.
This is an unusual combination of ingredients but OMG is it delicious! A great way to get kids to consume buttermilk - you can't taste it at all! You gotta try this one!!!!!
This recipe is really tasty. Whenever I make it to take to a potluck dinner someone always wants the recipe.
A perfect salad to please everyone. It always fits the occasion. I have made it many times. It's a winner.
Although this recipe takes several steps to prepare, it's well worth the time. We loved it! It's definitely a keeper. Next time I might try another flavor jello just to experiment.
