Blueberry Jello Salad/Dessert-Making this one for company this weekend!

1 (21 oz) can blueberry pie filling
1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple, undrained
2 (3 oz) boxes grape jello
2 cups boiling water

1 container cool whip
1 cup sour cream
fresh blueberries for garnish

Dissolve jello in boiling water, add pie filling and undrained pineapple to jello. Pour into 9x9 pan (or mold) and place in refrigerator to allow to set at least 2 hours or overnight. (I let mine chill overnight.) Gently combine cool whip and sour cream and spread over the top of the jello. Sprinkle blueberries on top.

**I have heard of people substituting black cherry or cherry jello and cherry pie filling for the grape jello & blueberry pie filling, but I've never tried that. I'll bet that'd be good, too!**

Hmmm....Apples are good for you, and they do have fat free cool whip. Yay!! A health food recipe!! (this sounds wickedly good).

How about a cabbage salad-I'm really picky, but I love this!

1 small head of Green Cabbage (chopped) or small pkg of Cole Slaw (I do this fast and more colorful).
1/2 cup Sliced Almonds (I toast these, I like the flavour)
1 pkg. or Ichiban Chow Mein Soup
1/4 cup Toasted Seseme Seeds
Green Onions Chopped (I don't put these in as I don't like them)

Dressing: spice from soup mix, 1 tsp. Salt, 1/2 cup Oil, 1tbsp. White Sugar, 1/4 cup Vinegar.

Add dressing to the cabbage, almonds, soup noodles, seseme seeds and onions. Toss and serve.

If you use the pkg of Cole Slaw don't put all of the dressing on it is too much. Refridgerate left over dressing and use it for another salad.

My family loves this one.

Ranch Corn Salad

16oz. frozen corn, thawed
1 15oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
6-8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
3 green onions, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2-1 cup ranch dressing
1-2 jalepenos, seeded and chopped (optional)
1 4oz. can sliced black olives, drained (optional)

Mix everything together and then add the ranch dressing to your desired consistency. Super eaten right away, but even better if left refrigerated for several hours to let the flavors meld. Yummo!

Here's an easy one that's always popular with my vegetarian nieces and nephews.

Lentil Salad

Cook lentils until they are tender. Mix with several cloves of minced garlic, fresh herbs of your choice, minced red onion, olive oil and white balsamic vinegar. Chill.
