My Grandma Trudy used to make what I called Orange Fluff and it’s summer junk food at its best:
1 pkg (sm) orange jell-o
1 can mandarin oranges drained
1 container cottage cheese
1 container cool whip
Mix everything together and refrigerate.
Its kind of considered a buffet side salad and I have seen versions of it in salad bars. But nothing compares to this. I can’t get enough of this stuff….not healthy but not too, too bad.
LOL – I have just been reading James Beard and he would consider this a basement salad, and I have to agree with him, this is not a salad, its just one of those things.
