Mandarin Cookie Salad
The Insider's Scoop, Pg 46 (From: Aug 1995 NL)
When I asked Mary why she loves this recipe so much, she simply remarked "Just do". Maybe part of the reason is because this is really a make over of a recipe of Mary's mother that I redid in "The Healthy Exchanges Way".
2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
1 cup water
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1 (4 serving) package JELL-O sugar free instant vanilla pudding mix
3/4 cup Yoplait plain fat free yogurt
1 cup Cool Whip Lite
2 cups (two 11 oz cans) mandarin oranges, rinsed and drained
12 (2 1/2 inch) Nabisco Honey Maid Chocolate Graham Crackers, coarsely crushed
In a large bowl, combine dry milk powder, water and vinegar. Mix well using a wire whisk. Let set 2 minutes. Add dry pudding mix. Mix well using a wire whisk. Fold in yogurt and Cool Whip Lite. Add mandarin oranges and crushed chocolate graham crackers. Mix gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Gently stir again just before serving.
