This could easily be called dessert, but if you call it salad you won’t feel so guilty about having seconds. If you’re one of those people who is turned off by jello, please give this a try anyway. Even my jello hating husband likes it.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 packages blackberry jello
2 cups boiling water
1 can blueberries, drained but save the juice
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple drained, save the juice
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
Dissolve the jello in the boiling water. Add 1 cup of saved juice. Stir in the blueberries and pineapple. Refrigerate until set up.
For the topping, mix the cream cheese and sugar together with an electric mixer. Fold in the sour cream and vanilla. Spread on the jello and sprinkle with nuts.
