    Strawberry Salad

    2 cups crushed (not too fine) unsalted pretzels (6 oz.)
    3 Tbsp sugar
    3/4 cup butter
    1 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
    1 cup confectioners sugar
    1 8-oz. container frozen nondairy whipped topping, thawed
    2 cups miniature marshmallows (4 oz.)
    2 cups water
    2 (3 oz.) pkgs. strawberry-flavored gelatin
    2 (12 oz.) pkgs. frozen strawberries, partially thawed

    Preheat oven to 350. Combine the pretzels, sugar, and melted butter in
    medium-size bowl; mix well. Press the mixture into the bottom of a
    13x9x2" baking dish. Bake the crust for 15 minutes or until lightly
    toasted. Cool completely. Beat together the cream cheese & confectioners
    sugar in a large bowl. Fold in the whipped topping and the marshmallows.
    Spread the mixture over the crust in an even layer. Bring water to boiling
    in a medium-size saucepan. Add gelatin and stir to dissolve. Add
    strawberries. Pour over second layer. Refrigerate until firm. To serve,
    cut the salad into squares.

    NOTE: I've also used pretzels with salt, and it still tasted great!
