Yum-Yum Salad

Comment on this recipe

I have given this recipe to several friends and it's always a great salad with whatever you serve. You can use what ever flavor of Jello you like and what ever fruits your family likes to fold in. My two favorites are strawberry and orange. Hope you enjoy this as much as our family likes eating this salad.

Ingredients

2 boxes (3.2 ounces each) any flavor Jello
2 boxes (3 ounces each) tapioca pudding (not instant)
3 cups cold water
1 container (8 ounces) Cool Whip
Fruit, such as fresh strawberries, canned mandarin oranges or sliced bananas

Instructions

Bring first three ingredients to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Cool in refrigerator until almost set. Fold in container of Cool Whip. If using strawberry Jello, fold in 1 quart fresh strawberries. If using orange Jello, fold in 2 cans (11 ounces each) mandarin oranges, drained. Or cut up 2 bananas and add to the Jello. Refrigerate in a pretty glass bowl and enjoy.
