Orange Fluff Jello Salad

Y’all no southern holiday meal is complete without a jello salad.  It just rounds out the meal.  Sort of like the pre-dessert that you can eat with your veggies.  This Thanksgiving our table will have a large dish of this Orange Fluff Jello Salad.  Give it a try!  It is super simple to make and your family will love it.  You don’t have to wait for a holiday — serve this with any meal or as a special treat.

You will need:

  • 20 oz can of crushed pineapple
  • small box of orange Jello
  • 8 oz of cream cheese
  • 8 oz of whipped topping



First of all, the Jello in the picture above is a large box cause I picked up the wrong thing at the store.  I used 1/2 of that package — had to improvise!  Alright now here we go!
Add entire can of pineapple (undrained) to a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Add orange jello and stir well.  Boil about 2 minutes.  Dice cream cheese and add that to jello mixture.  Stir until most of cream cheese is melted.  Pour into a large flat dish and put in the freezer or refrigerator.  Once your mixture starts to congeal remove and stir in the 8 oz package of whipped topping.  Put your dish in the refrigerator to set up for at least 3 hours before serving.

This salad is amazing!  Creamy, light, fluffy.  This will be the perfect addition to your holiday celebration — or just make it this weekend to taste test it!

    I made this for my boyfriend who has never had jello anything but loves pineapple. I loved that this recipe incorporated the pineapple juice instead of just draining it away. It’s so yummy and simple… and idiot proof. He’s gonna melt when he tries this! I can’t wait!
