This yummy jello salad is similar to other orange jello salads that I've seen, but in my opinion, it's the best one! Why is it called Floyd's Salad? It's a family recipe that I got from my Mother and she, in turn, got from her Mother. A gentleman named Floyd used to always bring it to church potlucks, and this is what her family has always known it as. Now we all call it Floyd's Salad.
This salad is very easy to put together and it tastes delicious! It's perfect for your summer picnics. I am not a fan of jello or jello salad type things or anything like that, this is the only one that I love, so you know it has to be good! I made this for little man's birthday party this past weekend and it was a big hit.
