Mandarin Orange Dessert Salad

Mandarin Orange Dessert Salad

Community Classics .
Edited on Oct 21, 2005

It is a holiday favorite. Several of my nieces expect it at our meal. I always try to set some extra aside for them to have for an extra take-home treat.


3 cups of water
1 package dry non-instant vanilla pudding mix
1 package of dry tapioca pudding mix
2 packages of orange jelatin
1 small can of drained mandarin oranges
1 8 ounce tub of whipped topping


Mix the packages in a medium size saucepan. Add 3 cups of water stirring as you add. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until it's fairly thick. Cool. Place in a bowl. Next add the topping and oranges. *Be sure to reserve a couple tablespoons of topping and several orange slices for decorating the top of the bowl. Set in the refrigerator.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
