We recently had some friends over for dinner and they brought this delicious Blueberry Jello salad. I couldn't get enough of it! It was different than the regular Jello you normally have and SO good. It was almost like a dessert. Thanks for the new idea Royene!
Blueberry Jello Salad
from my friend Royene
1 6 oz pkg of black cherry Jello (I couldn't find it in the big box, so I just bought 2 of the small boxes)
1 15 oz can Oregon Blueberries in light syrup (undrained)
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple (undrained)
1 8 oz cream cheese
1 8 oz sour cream
1/2 c sugar (this makes it really sweet, almost like a dessert. I tried it the second time with 1/4 c and it was good too)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
In a 9x13 pan - dissolve Jello in 2 c boiling water. Add blueberries and pineapple - undrained (this replaces the cold water). Refrigerate until set - about 4 hours.
Beat softened cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla in mixer until smooth. Spread over well set Jello. Sprinkle with chopped nuts (if using). Refrigerate until ready to serve.
