Ms. Ann's Mandarin Orange Salad

I obtained this receipe from my friend Ms. Ann, from Forest Mississippi. I had breakfast with Ms. Ann before attending the Neshoba County Fair in nearby, Philidelphia, MS. Ms. Ann prepared a lavish spread for our breakfast, with included the Mandarin Orange Salad. This salad is a very versitel dish. It's one of those dishes that can be eaten anytime of day. It can be a salad or a dessert. Even for breakfast. It's light and airy, but packs the right about of punch and sweetness with the taste of the oranges.

Mandarin Orange "Salad"

2 rolls Ritz crackers, crushed
1/4 lb Oleo, melted
1/4 C sugar
1 (6oz) can frozen orange juice, thawed
1 can condensed milk

Mash crackers, oleo and sugar mixture into 9 x 13 inch pan (leaving a few of the mixture out for topping). Blend orange juice and mandarin oranges. Stir in cool whip and then milk.Pour remaining into pan and top with remaining crumbs. Refrigerate.
