Delicious Dish Tuesday: Strawberry Pretzel Salad Flag


Welcome to another week of Delicious Dish Tuesday... This week I am sharing my Strawberry Pretzel Salad Flag with you...This is a hit with my family around the Holidays... I hope you enjoy it as much as we do... Also make sure you stop by the host's pages to see the great recipes they are showing and their favorite picks from last weeks recipes submitted Amanda of Coping with Frugality and Alesha of Full Time Mama... 

This recipe is yummy and very easy I hope you enjoy it!!


What You Need:
Crust -
2 cups crushed pretzels ( I use the small sticks)
3/4 cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons white sugar


Filling -
1 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 8 oz container of frozen whipped topping, thawed

Topper - 
2 3oz packages of strawberry Jell-O
2 cups boiling water
2 10oz packages of frozen Strawberries

Topping - 
1 8 oz container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 package of fresh Strawberries washed and sliced or you can cut in halves
1 package of fresh blueberries washed

What You Do:
Preheat the oven to 400*.
Stir together the crushed pretzels, melted butter and 3 tablespoons sugar; mix well and press the mixture into the bottom of 9x13 inch baking dish. I use a piece of wax paper to press the mixture in the pan evenly.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Set aside and to cool.

In a large mixing bowl cream together the cream cheese and 1 cup sugar. Then fold in 1 container of whipped topping. Spread mixture evenly over the cooled crust.

Dissolve the Jello-O in boiling water. Stir in the frozen strawberries and allow to set briefly. When mixture is about the consistency of egg whites, pour and spread over the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate until set. Takes about 45 minutes to and hour to set up.

Once the Jell-O layer is set you can then decorate your salad with the toppings. Take the other container of frozen whipped topping that you thawed and spread it evenly over the Jello-O mixture. Then use the sliced strawberries and blueberries to decorate the dish like the American Flag.

Enjoy!!
