Outstanding recipe!!! After making this recipe several times, I tweaked it just a-bit. For the bottom layer I substituted 2 (3 ounce) packages of berry blue jell-o gelatin for the strawberry jell-o and added 1 pint of fresh blueberries. If you are going to un-mold, swap the bottom layer and top layers for a red, white, blue salad. Great for the fourth!
