This Blueberry Jell-O Salad recipe is a fun variation from original Jell-O salad. My kids beg for this! This salad is the perfect side dish or dessert to take to picnics, parties, and barbecues.
We use pineapple because it gives the jello layer a chunkier texture. But if you don’t like the thicker texture, just omit the pineapple and it is still delicious! You can also substitute other fruits like bananas, strawberries, and raspberries. I love the fresh sweet taste of the blueberries topped with the thick fluffy cheesecake like top layer of this salad.
