Your taste buds will thank you after trying this Blueberry Jello Salad! The combination is a heavenly mix that tastes divine! You will wonder where it has been your whole life!
We recently attended our niece’s baptism. After the baptism her family held a dinner with family and friends and that is where I was introduced to what might possibly be my favorite Jello Salad ever.
It was a delicious Blueberry Jello salad with cream cheese and whipped cream with a mixed nut topping.
Ah. I definitely went back for seconds and was dying to get my hands on the recipe!
While my sister couldn’t remember to brought the dish to the dinner, I decided to get to work at replicating it and I have to say- this tastes just like it!
This is one recipe that we will make again and again, and I hope you do, too.
What can I serve with Jello Salad?
We first enjoyed this dish at a pot luck dinner. The main dish was pulled pork sandwiches and I thought this was a perfect side for that!
But let’s be real- can serve anything with Jello salad!
Here are a few of our favorite dishes to serve alongside Blueberry Jello Salad.
I wouldn’t recommend using substitutions for this recipe.
However, you can always leave the nut topping off, use low- fat or fat-free versions of Jello or whipped cream and if you can’t find the flavors of Jello needed just pick flavors that are comparable.
Other options could be strawberry or grape jello.
How long will Jello Salad keep in the fridge? If properly stored in an airtight container it should be good for 1-2 days.
Can I make Jello Salad ahead of time? Yes. I would recommend making it several hours ahead of time to allow the flavors to mesh. Be sure to serve within 24 hours. If doing so, put the nuts on right before serving.
Can I double this recipe? Always!
Can I leave the nuts off? Yes, you can.
