Red, White ‘n’ Blue Salad

Red, White 'n' Blue Salad


This is probably, hands down, my favorite dessert.  My mom has made it for years for holidays (changing up the colors for Christmas etc.) and this is my first time attempting to make it myself.  I doubled the batch because 1. there will be a lot of people and 2. I absolutely love it and wanted to make sure I had some for me.  My major issue was the colors ran on two of the batches.  You can see some white in the red in the bowl.  I am going to cover it with cool whip and then you won’t be able to see that.  I do have another container I used and that one ran a little more… oops!  I did make sure that the layer underneath felt solid and cured, but I guess it even has to be cured more.  It says about an hour between layers but I would wait a little longer.

Red, White & Blue Salad


The recipe is here from Taste of Home.  It is a really simple recipe to follow and looks amazing.  You can do it without the blue berries/ raspberries if you want and you can do it with Strawberry jello instead of Raspberry.
