Cool Summer Dessert Recipe: This Layered Strawberry Pretzel Salad Recipe Is the Best Kind of Salad

If you've been to a potluck or summer family gathering, you've probably tried this fun strawberry pretzel layered dessert recipe. The salty pretzels, sweet cream cheese filling and fresh strawberries make an irresistible combination. We're not sure why some call it a salad, but we're fine with whatever as long as we can eat it. 

Cuisine: American 
Prep Time: 15 minutes plus 4 hours to chill
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 4 hours and 23 minutes
Servings: 16



  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 1/2 cups finely crushed pretzels
  • 3 tablespoons sugar



Here's how to make it:

  1. To make the crust, combine the crushed pretzels, butter and sugar. Press into a 13x9-inch baking dish. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 8 minutes. 
  2. For the filling, cream together the sugar and cream cheese. Fold in the whipped cream. Spread it over the cooled crust.
  3. To  make the topping, whisk the gelatin into the boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Add the strawberries and stir to combine. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes to cool before pouring it over the cream cheese layer. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours to set before serving.
