Delicious 5 Minute Mandarin Orange Jello Salad


This creamy 5 Minute Mandarin Orange Jello Salad is such a light refreshing side dish or dessert.  And it’s so easy to make too- all you need is 5 minutes!

The one evening I can guarantee enthusiastic cheers from all 3 kids at dinner time is pizza night.  In fact, if I happen to not put it on our $200 a Month Menu Plan that week, I know that I’ll have at least one child complaining because they miss pizza and wish we were having it!

If you need a quick dish to pair with your pizza dinner or just want something light and refreshing to serve at your next cookout, I highly recommend this easy mandarin orange salad!  It’s definitely a winner!
