I have had this salad or something very close to it at a party but never got the recipe. I am so glad to see it here. I made mine using frozen blackberries, because they are my favorites. The sweet and salty flavors do go well together. The creamy middle layer is yummy too.

I made this recipe and love it! The salty and smooth and berry flavors are distinct and so good together. Thanks for the recipe!

My Great Aunt Elsie used to make this every year for Christmas. After she passed away a few years ago, it was to my horror that she never told anyone else her recipe! Thanks for bringing this part of my childhood back!! IT'S DELICIOUS!!!

I use to make this recipe all the time, and I lost it, thanks! I changed it just a tad bit, I used the frozen sliced strawberries in syrup they blend in easier and I omitted the lemon rind. This is a great dessert or even side dish too, made it for our New Years dinner.

I served this salad at my cousin's baby shower once and everyone was clammering for the recipe.

This is excellent! The 4 *'s may be something I can correct myself. I tried to make the crust like a graham cracker crust. It turned out crumbly. Don't crush the pretzels that much, just break them up into small pieces. I made it with low sodium pretzels, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup butter. For the cream layer I used fat free cream cheese and lite cool whip. On the top I used sugar free jello w/ fresh strawberries. Use 1 cup boiling water to dissolve jello in, then put in ice cubes to make 2 cups liquid. Once they melt your jello will be soft set. Add your fruit and place on cream layer. This will keep the cream from melting and mixing with the jello layer. I took this to a potluck as 24 servings and they ate it all up! I almost didn't get any!

I absolutely love this jello. My favorite variation is to use raspberry jello along with fresh or frozen raspberries. It is a family gathering favorite that is requested often!

This was excellent. I really liked the addtion of the lemon peel to the white cream cheese/cool whip mixture. Thanks for sharing.

Very good. I misread the recipe and only bought one box of berry blue jello. So I also used a raspberry jello with it. This is so good. We served it as a dessert instead of a salad. Thank you for posting.
