|Pretzel Crust in the making|
This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for this colorful, cool, and summery Strawberry Jell-o Salad. Because I made this to take to my mom’s house for a Memorial Day barbecue, I couldn’t resist throwing in some blueberries for a red, white, and blue dessert!

The Baked Boys say that although Jell-o Salad recipes span the U.S., you’re either a lover or a hater. Well, I’m neither. Jell-o Salads are not something I grew up eating, so I’m just not that familiar with them. Sure, we had Jell-o with Cool Whip for a refreshing dessert, but not salads. So, I was skeptical about trying this recipe. In the end, my curiosity won out and I was brave enough to serve it to my family.
|Not the prettiest thing to serve…|
Guess what? We all really liked it. It was the perfect dessert to follow the smorgasbord my mother and step-father prepared. The flavors and textures complimented each other and the flavor of the fresh berries shone through! I can’t say I’m a total convert on the Jell-o Salad issue, but I can say I really enjoyed this one.
