Northwest Jello Salad

READY IN: 6hrs 20mins
Recipe by Heart 'N Soul

I love the flavor of this jello and it is very pretty when molded in a bundt type pan. My mom aquired this recipe and made it for the 4th of July as it is layers of red white and blue, however, we enjoy it so much it has become a part of most other holidays as well! Be sure to cool down the second and third layers before pouring onto the chilled set layer(s) to avoid melting set layer(s)!

Top Review by Judy from Hawaii

I made this for a 4th of July themed party. Canned blueberries were about 6 bucks, & I had some fresh fruit on hand. So I chose a blue colored jello for that layer & used the fresh fruit. I tend to stay away from jello (don't know why, but I seem to have a jello phobia), but this receipe was actually quite easy to put together & was very pretty. Taste wise, I liked the fruit layers better than the creamy layer, but it was all good.
