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!!!
