What is strawberry pretzel salad?
It's really a dessert. I don't know why anyone would call it a salad, but there it is. I could eat this salad all day.
The bottom layer: about a half bag of pretzels, chopped up to about 3C, mixed with 3/4C butter, melted, and 3 T sugar. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 400* for 8-10 minutes. Cool.
2nd layer: 8oz cream cheese mixed with 1C sugar. Fold in 8oz Cool Whip. Spread on cooled pretzel layer.
Top layer: 2 pkg strawberry jello disolved into 2C boiling water. Mix in 20oz frozen strawberries. Wait 5-10 minutes until it starts to set, then spread over the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate until serving time.
