This was so easy to make and was delicious too. Even my b-i-l asked for seconds and he usually doesn't are for jello. I'll definitely make again.
Great recipe from my childhood. Raspberry jell-o is also a very good substitution for the grape. I added a little bit of finley chopped pecans on the top-yummy and good texture.
We made it for Christmas instead of our usual cranberry jello salad. We also used the berry blue jello. It was good. My dad complimented it over and over. We will be making it again.
This was a really great recipe. I made this for DH's family Thanksgiving dinner last evening. It should be noted that this is not a 'slice & serve' jello salad, as I had thought. It should instead be 'set' in a bowl, topped w/ whipped cream and served w/ a spoon. Wal-Mart had NO grape jello (go figure!!??) so I actually made this with berry blue flavored jello. Result was yummy! Numerous requests for the recipe. It 'set' well w/ directions followed exactly. Thanks for sharing! I'm adding this to our personal favorites cookbook. :)
Wonderful and tasty! I used only 1/2 cup of sour cream since I wanted the cream cheese to be more prominent and only 1/4 cup sugar for less sweetness on the second time I made this recipe. I found out the first time that only regular cream cheese should be used since the low fat broke down the consistency. I used the blueberry pie filling and 1 1/2 cups of frozen blueberries for a thicker salad. Both times the salad was carried to family gatherings and was a popular choice. I will continue to make this salad with these adjustments. Prepared as a participant in the Soup, Salad and Sandwich Event in the Cooking Photo Forum for April 2010.
So good and a real eye pleasing salad. This would be great for potlucks and get togethers. Thank you for posting.
This is a great summer recipe. The last time I made it I used blackberry pie filling with blackberry blast jello. I topped with fresh blackberries instead of my traditional crushed walnuts. By the time the meal was over the entire salad was gone. . Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe...
I really like this recipe. I have made it for several occasions and it is always enjoyed. I have used the blue jello as well as the grape, and the last time I added cherry to the blue. The pineapple adds a nice texture, and the topping is just sweet enough to complement the dish. While I place this dish on my buffet table as part of the main meal, it is a nice dessert as well.
I didn't care for this one. But I sent it to my in-laws to try and they liked it. I may try it with the cherry Jello and Cherry Pie filling.
I'm kind of on the fence with this recipe. I thought it would be too rich with grape jello so I tried it with "Berry Blue" instead. (Maybe I ruined it with that flavor of jello??) I usually really like anything with blueberries in it but I thought this was just ok. Although my 2 yr old would disagree... She couldn't get enough of this! I think next time I'd leave out the pineapple because I couldn't really taste it and I didn't care for the texture. I really liked the topping. That was wounderful! I cut the sour cream to 1/2 cup and it was perfect for me. I think I'd like to try this one with the cherry jello and pie filling. I think I'd enjoy that combination better. There really wasn't anything wrong with this, It just didn't taste like I expected it to but Thank You for sharing.
