"The combination of a sweet, fruity gelatin layer and a pecan-crusted cheesecake-like layer makes for an unforgettable molded salad. You can use black cherry gelatin rather than blackberry, if you wish." — Edith

Absolutely delicious! The first time I made this, I tried to invert the salad and it was a mess. So now I use a pretty glass bowl and put the cream cheese mixture on top with the pecans. Also, instead of measuring the liquid from the can of blueberries and pineapple to equal one cup, I just add the blueberries and pineapple straight from their cans into the prepared jello. The amount of liquid in those cans equal one cup anyway, so why measure it out? Turns out perfect everytime.
I liked the other recipe on this site, "Blueberry Salad". It is a lot easier and calls for raspberry jello which is alwyas available. Don't even think about inverting this salad - the topping is delicious but too thin to expect it to hold up the weight of the Jell-o layer.
Yummy! Instead of digging out a mold, I put it in a glass 9x13 pan with the cheescake layer on the bottom. Will make again and again!
I made this for years, but had difficulty finding blackberry jello---the only company that makes that flavor (I haven't liked any substitute flavors-like black cherry) can be contacted at 1-800-323-2592--the blackberry flavored jello really is the best! Everyone always loves this recipe---especially men!
Delicious. I "lightened" this recipe up a bit by
using sugar free jello, reduced fat cream cheese, fat free sour cream and I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup.
It turned out excellent.
This is Fantastic! My family usually does not like jello salad, but this was a hit. I will top with crushed pretzles in place of the nuts next time. I did not have any problems with the cream cheese layer not setting up. Easily came out of the mold.
The finished product was great. Everyone loved it. Problem was, I didn't understand the bottom (?) layer, so I just inverted the jello mold and spread the cream cheese layer on top! Worked for me!!
Loved this! I couldn't find blackberry jello, son I subbed in Berry Blue, which was great!
