I found this recipe from Food and is really caught my eye. It looked delicious and definitely interesting. This Strawberry Pretzel Salad is the combo of strawberries, salty pretzels, and sweet cream cheese in the middle is so yummy.The combination tastes a lot like a no-bake cheesecake, but this is technically a salad, a dessert salad, which is any sweet dish made with gelatin and whipped topping.Cool, creamy, crunchy, sweet, tart goodness all in one bite…oh yeah!!!

- 3/4 cup butter, melted

- 1 (8 ounce) carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 2 (3 ounce) packages strawberry gelatin

In a large mixing bowl cream together cream cheese and white sugar.
