Red, White & Blue Salad ~ a refreshing, patriotic dessert packed with fresh blueberries and strawberries!
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.
