Blueberry Gelatin Salad

"This is a delicious salad or dessert that requires little effort but looks and tastes heavenly. I used raspberry gelatin in place of cherry because it's what I had. I also threw in some raspberries with the blueberries. Don't make your cream cheese mixture too soon or you'll sample a little too much before the jello is ready...cooks beware! I used frozen fruit, but I'd love to try it when fresh fruit is in season. I found the recipe in Taste of Home Parties, Potlucks, and Barbecues from Mildred Livingston in Phoenix, Arizona. Cook time excludes chilling time."

  1. What a great gelatin salad. This recipe certainly deserves more than 5 stars. For this recipe, I used fresh blueberries rather than canned bluberries, and before I added the berries to the gelatin, I placed the heated/dissolved gelatin in the fridge to cool (for exactly 30 minutes). After 2-1/2 hours, I checked the gelatin to see if it was firm enough to top w/the cream cheese-sour cream mixture, and it was. Thank you Amy for posting this delicious gelatin salad. It's definitley a keeper!
  2. This is similar to a recipe my grandmother made in the 70's. We would look forward to it at the family holiday dinners. The only difference I see from mine is the flavor of Jell-O used. She used apricot and I now use strawberry. It is an excellent recipe!!


I love to try new recipes, and this is a wonderful site to find new additions. I rarely make the same thing twice because it's so much fun to try something different. My life long dream is to travel the world and eat my way around it.
