Layered Jello Salad

Any jello and fruit combination can be used. Plan for at least 6-8 hours to prep and for the Jello to set. Great served in a trifle or other straight-sided glass bowl so you can see the different layers. Use small packages of Jello and 1/2 the 2nd layer for a small family.

Red, White and Blue Salad

First Layer:
Dissolve a small package raspberry Jello in 1 cup hot water. Cool slightly. Add 1 (16 oz.) can of blueberries* plus all the juice. Let set in a 13x9x2-inch pan. (About 1 hour)
Second Layer:
Soak 1 envelope unflavored gelatin in 1/2 cup cold water. Combine in a small saucepan: 1 cup whipping cream (unwhipped) and 1 cup sugar. Cook over low heat til sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and add gelatin mixture, 2 cups sour cream and 1 tsp. vanilla. Mix to a cream consistency and pour over first layer and let set.

Third Layer:
Dissolve 1 large pkg. strawberry Jello in 2 cups hot water. Add 2 cups cold water.  Pour over first two layers and let set.

*Not pie filling. Use large pkg. jello if not adding such a large amount of fruit. If not using fruit, follow directions on the package.
