Skinny Easy Orange Delight Salad

skinny easy orange delight salad

While perusing my mom’s extensive old community cookbook collection, I was excited to come upon this recipe for “Orange Delight Quick Salad.” It seemed like such a great variation of 3-Ingredient Pineapple Fluff so popular with Weight Watchers through the decades.  

I whipped up a batch and was “delighted” with how it turned out. Rod and my mom liked it too, though she felt the addition of chopped nuts would make it better. 

This super easy to make luscious cool and creamy salad or dessert goes by lots of different names: WW Fluff, Orange Fluff, Orange Delight. But no matter what you call it, it’s delicious!
