Yummy salad or dessert

"It looks wonderful and was very easy. I used low cal or fat free ingredients and it still tasted wonderful. Note to newcomers to this recipe...make crust first before you start on next steps..I would then do third layer and as it sits do second layer steps...thanks again!
I made this again tonight. Did a mixed berry bag instead of just strawberries. Also added walnuts to the jello mixture...awesome,"

I used raspberry jello and frozen raspberries. Everyone, my father, my husband, children and grandchildren loved it.

It was just weird...with the cream cheese and pretzels. I had extra jello with strawberries and my family had no problem eating that. Next time I'll save the trouble of making the 1st and 2nd layers and just serve the top with cottage cheese.

I made this recipe a couple days ago. I added some crushed pecans into the pretzel shell. I used fresh strawberries instead of frozen. It came out beautifully and tasted awesome. Thanks for a great recipe.
