Strawberry Pretzel Parfait

This recipe combines fresh strawberries, a creamy cheese and a pretzel crust in layers to make a fancy one serving treat for your friends and family.

Growing up it was common to have someone bring a dish we all called Strawberry Pretzel Jello Salad to a potluck dinner. It’s really more of a dessert to me than a salad but I guess since it had jello it was fair game for a jello salad. I remember when we lived in Tennessee for a short while and I brought the Strawberry Pretzel Jello Salad. Everyone wanted the recipe and I thought it was funny that they had never had this common neighborhood treat. So I pulled out my old local cookbook and happily shared the recipe with the group.

It is this recipe that I used to come up with a fun Easter treat this year. I was serving 16-20 people and I wanted to use some the fresh strawberries that I noticed in the market coming up from the south.

I decided to make individual parfaits with some of the same ingredients as the famous salad. However, I did not use the jello. It just seemed like too much work and since I was serving Easter dinner for a fairly big crowd I had to make it doable.

It turned out great and was easily done in the afternoon. The only problem was the refrigerator space.
