Orange Jell-o Salad
3 C buttermilk
8 oz. Cool Whip
2 3oz. pkg. orange Jell-O
8 oz. crushed pineapple with juice
1 C chopped pecans
Put Jell-O, pineapple and juice in a small pan and bring to a boil. Cool. Add buttermilk and Cool Whip, and chopped nuts. Mix well, and refrigerate overnight. Makes a large bowl, and keeps well.
My dear mother-in-law used to make this in the summer, and the family always enjoyed it. This recipe is from the 50's...the heydey of congealed salads...always present at Southern ladies lunches and showers! I think I'll make some!
