Red, White and Blue Jello Fruit Salad

We made this dish for the 4th of July.  It’s perfect for any patriotic holiday and was absolutely scrumptious. If you plan to serve it in the evening, plan on spending the day putting it together.  If you plan for the afternoon, make it the night before.  This recipe was inspired by The Taste of Home.  You can find their recipe here:  RED WHITE N BLUE SALAD.  Mine is a slightly different take, but I’m sure theirs is equally delicious.  Honestly, I’d make this for any special occasion, just change up the type of jello you use and create your own idea for any special event.  Please let us know in the comments if you do.  We’d love to try it “your way”  :).

Instructions
Blue Layer
  1. In a small bowl, add boiling water to Jello and stir until dissolved. Pour in 1 cup cold water and stir together. Add blueberries and chill in the refrigerator until firm for about an hour. the blueberries will float on top, that is the desired effect.
White Layer
  1. After the blue layer has firmed, sprinkle the unflavored gelatin over the 1/2 cup of water and let stand for 1 minute (If it's longer, that's ok.) Pour the gelatin into a sauce pan with the heavy cream and the sugar and cook until sugar is dissolved. Add the sour cream and vanilla extract mixing until smooth with a wire whisk. Pour or spoon over blue layer. Place in refrigerator until firm.
Red Layer
  1. After white layer has firmed, combine boiling water, sugar and raspberries in a sauce pan and cook until sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add the raspberry Jello and cook an additional 5 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup cold water. Pour over white layer and refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to serve.Red White and Blue Jello Salad
