fresh strawberries cut into bite size piecesPour dry pudding packet and Jell-o packet into a small pan and add 2 cups water. Stir well over medium heat until it boils. Remove from the stove and pour into a very large mixing bowl or into your electric mixer bowl Refrigerate until it thickens. (This takes apx 1-2 hours.) When you remove from the fridge, use a mixer, hand mixer, or whisk (with a LOT of muscle) to whip it until it is creamy and very few lumps are left. Add the Cool Whip – and mix lightly. Lightly fold in marshmallows and strawberries – save a few strawberries and marshmallows for a garnish. Pour into a nicer dish – because this one will be messy. Garnish. Cover and refrigerate until ready to go.
My mom always made this mandarin orange jellofluffsalad for many gatherings. It is a perfect dish for showers, barbecues but also the holidays when you want a light and fresh jellosalad to put on the table
Empty both boxes of jello into a large bowl and add boiling water. Note-I have also made this with sugar free jello,1%cottage cheese,lite Miracle Whip, and pineapple in its own juice for a lower sugar/calorie/fat version and it works just as well
Totally optional in the salad but do give it a nice texture. For salad. Dress salad. FOR SALAD. FOR CHICKEN2 Chicken Breasts1 Tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce1 Tbsp Grape OilFOR SALAD3 cups arugula (washed and spun dried)1 cup of strawberries1/2 cup blueberries1/2 red onion thinly sliced1/4 cup slivered almonds1/2 container soft goat cheese (my favorite brand for salad is Chavrie)2 tbsp aged balsamic2 tbsp fresh lemon juice1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil1 tsp honey1/2 tsp dijon mustard1/2 cup wheat berries (optional)To prepare the chicken breast, I use LeCreuset's Grill Pan. 1 cup wheat berries2 to 2 1/2 cups of waterNote that this will make more wheatberries that you need for the salad but these are good to have on hand for other salads or make a nice hearty breakfast
That’s what this salad is screaming. I don’t generally use mini marshmallows in anything but the occasional rice krispie treat for the kids and was skeptical last year when I made this that I could justify the marshmallow-effect, but after making, loving and devouring, I’ve decided that once a year, mini marshmallows belong in my salad and on my table
