Reviews for Creamy Blueberry Gelatin Salad
"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."
"I have been bringing this salad to family get together's since the early 70's when this recipe first came out..it's a winner"
"Have made this jello for years using sugar-free raspberry jello. It is always a big hit!"
"It was okay. Too sweet. I probably won't make it again."
"Loved the topping. The jello salad was way to sweet for me."
"This salad is a family favorite! It makes a great potluck dish, perfect for holidays and celebrations."
"Making 2 of these salads: one blueberry, other using red raspberry jello and pie filling. For a high school graduation party. School colors are red and black, hence blueberry. Ought to be a hit, ya think? K."
