Recipe note from the recipe creator, Lori McLain:

“This easy to swallow, bright orange tasting salad is full of protein and comforting fluff! The flavor is really fun and is inspired by my favorite Creamsicles from my childhood.

My uncle had larynx cancer and had trouble swallowing. He could eat this at family gatherings and the rest of the family likes it too. It is a nice carry-in dish.”

I cannot stress this enough: when you are diagnosed with cancer, GO TO A CANCER HOSPITAL! After that, go to another cancer hospital for a second opinion. This can literally mean the difference between life and death, or the quality of your life post-treatment.Paul Reitano
