Blueberry Jello Salad

My Grandma used to bring this Blueberry Jello Salad to family dinner’s when I was a child. There were times when it would have shredded carrot or celery in it, I leave the veggies out. It is sweet enough that it can be served as a dessert rather than a side dish if you prefer. Everyone loves it.

To retain the pretty purple color you can use grape, blackberry or black cherry jello. I was unable to find any of those flavors at my local grocery store, so I used raspberry jello.

In a 2-quart sauce pan bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Stir in the jello until completely dissolved. Mix in the undrained can of crushed pineapple and the blueberry pie filling. Pour into a 9×13 inch pan and refrigerate until firm ( 2-4 hours).

In a medium bowl combine the softened cream cheese and sugar. Cream together with an electric mixer or beaters. Add the sour cream and vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined. Stir in the walnuts if using. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top of the firm jello layer. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.
