This is a delicious salad or dessert that requires little effort but looks and tastes heavenly. I used raspberry gelatin in place of cherry because it's what I had. I also threw in some raspberries with the blueberries. Don't make your cream cheese mixture too soon or you'll sample a little too much before the jello is ready...cooks beware! I used frozen fruit, but I'd love to try it when fresh fruit is in season. I found the recipe in Taste of Home Parties, Potlucks, and Barbecues from Mildred Livingston in Phoenix, Arizona. Cook time excludes chilling time.

This is similar to a recipe my grandmother made in the 70's. We would look forward to it at the family holiday dinners. The only difference I see from mine is the flavor of Jell-O used. She used apricot and I now use strawberry. It is an excellent recipe!!
