Blueberry Cream Cheese Jello Salad

Blueberry Cream Cheese Jello Salad

Hello there, ladies and gentlemen. Can you believe, Thanksgiving  Day is next week! Good glory, I don’t know how that happened. Snuck right up on me. 🙂

This Blueberry Cream Cheese Jello Salad has been a staple at our Thanksgiving dinner for years and years. The flavors of blueberry and cream cheese go so nicely with turkey and gravy.

They do!

I’m not kidding.

Just go ahead and give it a try. You won’t be sorry.

PS…this recipe can be made through out the year, not just on Thanksgiving.

PPS…I posted this recipe 3 years ago with a dreadful picture. I figured it needed a little dusting off and bringing to the front of the pile. Hope you enjoy it!

    This looks absolutely wonderful! I am allergic to blueberry. Have you tried it with any other flavors?

      Hi Holly,
      I haven’t ever tried it with other flavors, but I would imagine it would work really well with raspberry or strawberry pie filling. Hope you enjoy it!

    My Mom has made this salad my entire life, it’s a family favorite but we give it a different name. As a kid I wouldn’t eat it because I said it looked like bird poop. So now it’s affectionately referred to as “Mom’s Bird Poop Salad” and I LOVE it!

    I love this dessert! I had this once and it was this recipe with the addiction of very finely chopped pecans on top. Added a nice little crunch to it, but to save money and hassle I think it is just perfect without it too 🙂

    We had our BIG Thanksgiving dinner early this year to make it easier for the whole family. I made this and it was a hit. However, for some reason the cream cheese clumped up, no matter how long I left it beating in my mixer. It was still delicious and everyone gobbled it up. Thanks for the tasty recipe.

    If the cream cheese clumped and would not beat smooth at some point the cream cheese had been frozen (maybe during shipping). I had the same thing happen to a couple things

      I have had cream cheese clump up on me if it has been frozen. Also, you need to be sure to let it soften and come to room temperature before you beat it. This will help it become smooth as well. Good luck!

    This looks delish! I’m wondering, would it be good with a graham cracker crust? Or is that even possible to do with this recipe? I’m VERY new to cooking.

    My Mom made this jello salad every Thanksgiving and Christmas and now I do. I had lost my recipe, and was SO happy to find this. The only difference with yours is the topping. My Mom always froze a pkg. of cream cheese, then grated it over the top. I always thought it kind of looked like snow. Your topping sounds yummy, so I’m gonna give it a try. Wonder if I could freeze and grate yours, too. Hmmm. . .
