It’s time to bring jello salads back in style: Orange Sherbet Jello Salad
Remember jello salads from the 70’s? Wait, maybe you don’t! You’ve certainly seen them in TV shows or read about them. Well, they have been around a long time, and here is one that you need to try!
My mom used to make this jello salad all the time when I was little. It showed up on every single Thanksgiving table, it showed up at potlucks, and it made an appearance as a special treat for us kids once in a while too.
Jello salads have gotten a bad rap over the years because people try to put too much stuff in them. This one is simply made with orange jello and mandarin oranges. And it has orange sherbet in it too, so that makes it the best jello salad ever!!!

- 2 c. boiling water
- 1 pt. orange sherbet
- 1 can mandarin orange, drained
