Strawberry Salad

It's been awhile since we've posted from the Entertaining Kitchen section, so I thought since I was whipping up a salad for our family bbq tonight, I'd share the recipe. Honestly, alot of you probably have this recipe.  It's a good one!  

Everytime I make it, my husbands states that it is more like a dessert than a salad.  It's sweet and has cream cheese, need I say more!  The first time I had it was more than 5 years ago.  Our Pastor's wife had made it for a dinner we were both invited to. 

The reason I am making it..... is because of this gal!

My California kid is home just for the weekend and it's her favorite.  In fact, one year for her birthday she requested this instead of a cake.  So to my friend H., the Pastor's wife, both Kassidy and I thank you!

I hope you enjoy it!  I know we will!  Thanks for stopping by!

Strawberry Salad

2 cups crushed pretzels
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter

Mix these three and spread in a 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 10 mins.  Let cool.

1- 8 oz. package cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 small carton whipped topping

Beat these together and spread over cooled pretzel crust.

1 lrg. box strawberry jello
2 cups boiling water
1 lrg. package frozen strawberries

Dissolve jello in boiling water.  Stire in strawberries, and chill until partially set.  Spread on top of cream cheese layer and chill.


  1. I'll give credit where credit is due here and say I think this is Evi's recipe. I believe I stole it from her through the church's cookbook.
    I agree though, it is DELICIOUS!
    So good to see pictures of your lovely California girl!
