My mom always made this mandarin orange jello fluff salad for many gatherings. This orange fluff jello salad cottage cheese version is to me the best. It is a perfect dish for showers, barbecues but also the holidays when you want a light and fresh jello salad to put on the table.
Mom had an arsenal of jello salad recipes but this orange jello fluff salad recipe was always my favorite. I loved the mandarin orange slices and the sweet creamy texture. I think you will love it too.
