Red, White & Blue Salad

posted by Julie Evink on June 7, 2013

Red White & Blue Salad ~ Festive treat for all of your Red, White & Blue Festivities via www.julieseatsandtreats.com

I just LOVE this time of year when all the Red, White & Blue posts are coming out of the woodwork like this Red, White & Blue Jello Salad. It makes me so proud to be an American. Corny kind of right?

Well that’s how I roll. A bit corny.

Maybe I just really like themed food. It makes it easier for me to decided each week what to try and make for you guys! I figured this one would be a hit because I know when I saw this pretty salad I got all excited. Yes. Food does that to me.

This salad is a bit of time consuming thing. Don’t worry it’s not hard by any means. It just takes a little bit of time and patience. I promise you when you walk into your 4th of July party with this beauty and the ooo’s and ahhh’s come out it will be totally worth it. Just plan a few days ahead of time so it has enough to set.

Plus it’s totally yummy! There are blueberries and strawberries hidden right inside this gem!
