I have been making this recipe for years. I also got the Jello mold as a free promo. The recipe is delicious! I tried using spray whipped topping one year and it melted fast. I suggest you pipe on Cool Whip or another brand from a tub. Try this if you want to impress your friends.
I used vanilla ice cream in place of the whipped topping and it really adds depth. For other holidays or special events use other colours.
fantastic! i all my guests are sure to enjoy it! i snagged a little piece and it is so hard to not keep it and eat it all myself!
Made this for Fourth of July in my Jello flag mold and everyone loved it! Easy and very festive. Mine looked just like Marg's beautiful picture though I will warn if decorating the top with whipped cream from the can, it should be done just before serving as it will not hold up like fresh whipped cream or Cool Whip. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! Note: For only one color of Jello in the flag mold, use 2 (8 serving size) or 4 (4 serving size packages) of any red Jello, 3 cups boiling water, 3 cups cold water. Top with blueberries for stars and Cool Whip or whipped cream for stripes.
I was a little afraid this might not work very well but it turned out lovely! It did take longer than 45 minutes for the jello to be right before I added the other layers but I imagine that was because my "ice water" wasn't as cold as it should have been. Next time I'll use more ice. I ran a knife around the edge before unmolding the salad and it slipped right out. Everyone thought it was delicious, as well as neat looking, and I even saw people taking seconds. Great recipe! I would think that if you don't have the Jello mold you might be able to make this in a 13x9-inch pan and just add the blueberries and whipped cream and it would look like a flag too.
