This is one great tasting salad I enjoy making one time a year: when the blueberries are in season. It's pretty much the only thing I make with blueberries, since they are expensive. A pretty colored salad! This is a great salad to have for the 4th of July.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the gelatin mix, sugar, lime juice, and boiling water for one minute, or until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Cover, and chill for one hour, or until slightly thickened.

  • When the gelatin mixture is thick, whip with a whisk or electric mixer until light in color, and double in volume. Whisk in whipped topping, and fold in blueberries. Lightly grease a 5 or 6 cup gelatin mold, and fill with the gelatin mixture. Chill for 4 hours, or until firm. Carefully unmold onto a platter, and serve.

I cheated on this one and used blackberries instead of the blueberries. Just in case anyone is having a dificult time finding the 3 oz. box of jello it's actually 0.3 oz. I used the sugar free kind and light cool whip. I poured the mix into the mold before adding the blackberries and refrigerated it overnight. It came out of the mold beautifully although I left it in the warm water a little too long(the top melted just a tiny bit). I will definitely use this recipe again. Read More

7.4.19 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/51800/blueberry-lime-mold/ ... Well, reading reviews I expected magic, but I got a refreshing, light lime gelatin-ish number with blueberries. The addition of the lime juice & sugar steps it up; a more "real" taste. I had a larger container of whipped topping, didn't feel like doing the math, so folded in two cups. 'Don't think whisking it in would be a good idea - like you shouldn't whisk the real deal into something - could be wrong about it being okay with whipped topping. Anywayyy, no magic, but a cool, Summer side just the same. Read More

This is really good. Bf hasn't tried it so I'll have to update when he does but I like it. It's light and fluffy. Pretty easy too. I put the timer on for an hour so I wouldn't accidently allow the jello to gel completely and it really didn't look that thickened to me but I went ahead and whipped it and added the remaining ingredients anyway. It worked perfectly fine. It does take some whisking so be prepared for some exercise or use a mixer. I used my stand mixer and it probably needed about 3-4 minutes on high speed to fluff up. I put some in 4 6 oz ramekins and the rest in a 2 quart bowl (I don't have a jello mold) and it filled the 2 quart bowl a little over half full so this does get a number of servings. I guess I didn't grease the ramekins that well bc a little bit stuck to it. It's sort of a pale lime green color; my picture doesn't do it justice unfortunately--it just looks off white in the pic.:o( Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was even better than I thought it would be. I wasn't sure about the added sugar but it was just right and made for a really nice combination of flavors. It was a big hit at the potluck I took it to & I only got a little bite of my dad's because it was already gone by the time I got to it. Read More

Loved it! I took it to a potluck and it all disappeared! I got great comments on it! Will be making it again. I did find that i didn't need all 8 oz of cool whip. and it took longer than an hour to get anywhere near thick. Read More

This jello is delicious! It's so light. I thought the lime juice would make it too tart but it was just right. And it's pretty too. Served it at Easter and everyone loved it. Glad to have a new jello recipe that is different from the one I always make. Thanks for sharing Domestic Goddess. Read More
