Orange Fluff Salad

My sister gave me this fluffy salad recipe that whips up in a jiffy. Unlike many gelatin recipes, there's no need to have the salad set for hours, so it's great for unexpected company. —Stacey Meyer, Merced, California

    Make sure your fruit is ready to add after mixing in jello. Save a little juice from fruit

    This a great recipe in which the fruit can be varied. I substituted 2 five ounce cartons of peach Greek yogurt for the sour cream and used 3 cups of fresh diced peaches instead of canned mandarins. This is the first time I've made it and can hardly wait to make again. A tip of my hat to whoever developed this lovely recipe.
