Orange Creamsicle Salad

Is it a salad or a dessert? You decide. This Orange Creamsicle Salad is an old-fashioned favourite. Versions of it have been around for generations! In my family, it’s typically served at special occasions like Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. It’s sweet, creamy, fluffy and delicious.

Another name for it is Dairy Salad. That doesn’t sound very appetizing to me and I prefer the name we call it.
