Blueberry Congealed Salad

"The combination of a sweet, fruity gelatin layer and a pecan-crusted cheesecake-like layer makes for an unforgettable molded salad. You can use black cherry gelatin rather than blackberry, if you wish."

Absolutely delicious! The first time I made this, I tried to invert the salad and it was a mess. So now I use a pretty glass bowl and put the cream cheese mixture on top with the pecans. Also, instead of measuring the liquid from the can of blueberries and pineapple to equal one cup, I just add the blueberries and pineapple straight from their cans into the prepared jello. The amount of liquid in those cans equal one cup anyway, so why measure it out? Turns out perfect everytime.

I liked the other recipe on this site, "Blueberry Salad". It is a lot easier and calls for raspberry jello which is alwyas available. Don't even think about inverting this salad - the topping is delicious but too thin to expect it to hold up the weight of the Jell-o layer.


Yummy! Instead of digging out a mold, I put it in a glass 9x13 pan with the cheescake layer on the bottom. Will make again and again!
