Dessert or Salad???

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

-1st LAYER-
2 cups crushed pretzels
3/4 cup melted butter
3 tablespoons sugar

Mix together and spread in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake 8 - 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Let cool.

-2nd LAYER-
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 9 ounce cool whip

Blend cream cheese and sugar. Fold in cool whip. Spread on pretzel mixture.

-3rd LAYER-
2 3 ounce package strawberry jello
2 cups boiling water
2 10 ounce package frozen strawberries

Dissolve jello in water. Stir in frozen strawberries and refrigerate 10 minutes until set. (I did not slice my strawberries but I think it would work better and look better if they were sliced.)

Then pour over 2nd layer.

Store in refrigerator.

  1. That is too hilarious! My MIL always calls it's whatever she needs in a meal. If we need a salad, she calls it a salad, but if we need a dessert, she calls it a dessert!

    Whatever you call it, it's delicious!
