This recipe comes from my sister-in-law.
It is a great make ahead treat, & truly, I can’t figure out if it is a salad (per the title) or a dessert!
2 C. crushed pretzels
3 t. sugar
3/4 c. margarine
Mix ingredients in a bowl & smooth out in a 9X13 baking dish. Bake at 400* for 10-12 minutes. Cool for 1 hour.
1/2 c. sugar
1 (8 oz) cream cheese
1 (8 oz) cool whip
Beat together & spread over cooled pretzels.
Mix 1 c. boiling water with a 6 oz package of strawberry or raspberry Jell-O. Add 10 oz frozen strawberries/raspberries. Mix until mixture thickens (approx. 2 minutes). Spread over cream cheese mixture & refrigerate at least 1 hour prior to serving.
