Creamy Blueberry Gelatin Salad

Plump blueberries and a fluffy topping star in this pretty, refreshing salad. My mom's blueberry salad was served at every holiday and celebration. Now my grandchildren look forward to sampling it at holidays. —Sharon Hoefert, Greendale, Wisconsin

    I love blueberries and this was perfect for Thanksgiving. I'm making it today just because I love it! I too use the berry blue jello and put walnuts/pecans in it to give it a soft crunch. It's absolutely fresh and delicious!

    Loved this so much. I have also made it with Cherry Pie filling, Raspberry, and Black berry. They were all so very yummy. Thank You for sharing this with us all. ?

    This is absolutely delicious! Definitely a keeper. I have made it with strawberry and it works well also.

    Made this for a Thanksgiving dinner and it was delicious. I used the berry blue jello. I think this would be great with either strawberry or cherry pie filling and jello. I plan to try those in the future.

    I actually changed it to strawberry gelatin and strawberry pie filling, and it was great, a huge hit with everyone.

    I have been making this for years. The only change I make is that I use berry blue jello and just one large box. I have also used knox gelatin and grape juice for a nephew that could not have the artificial colors and flavors in jello.

    I like the concept but it was just too sweet.

    Makes more sense to me to use "blueberry flavor Jello gelatin" rather than grape. I also use the blueberry Jello to make icing for blueberry cakes.....much better than grape for these applications.
