Easy - for beginners
An easy way to whip up a tasty dessert!
Mix together Cool Whip and Instant vanilla pudding (do NOT make the pudding, just use it dry).
Add undrained crushed pineapple and both cans of drained Mandarin Oranges. (Use as many mandarins as you like, more/less) Save a few mandarin oranges to decorate the top of salad.
Refrigerate until it thickens again maybe a couple of hours before you need to use it.
