Mandarin Orange Jello Salad

This is perfect for Spring Time Dinners or you can do like my family and have it with every holiday meal!  I have to double the recipe and it still isn't enough.  I also have to watch my family to make sure someone doesn't hide it from everyone else.

Hello,
This recipe looks wonderful. However, I am allergic to something in cool whip style toppings. Would whipped cream be to rich?

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. Definitely worth trying
