 Though it's called a salad, it's more like a dessert. Salty and sweet together, yum.

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

2 cups boiling water
1 (16 ounce) package frozen strawberries
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together the pretzels, 4 1/2 tablespoons sugar and melted butter. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool completely.

 I thought the same thing until I tried it, and now I love it. The combination of salty with the sweet is really good.
