Gluten Free Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Gluten Free Strawberry Pretzel Salad is my favorite for parties! This sweet and salty recipe is the perfect flavor combination!

Gluten Free Strawberry Pretzel Salad is so delicious. This dessert is perfect to make and take to parties, picnics or for holidays. My family loves this sweet and salty strawberry dessert and during the summertime they request it all the time. Trust me once you give it a try you will fall in love with it too!

Instead of using cool whip as the original recipe calls for I use Homemade Whipped Cream but either one will do! For the pretzel crust I use Glutino Pretzel Twists which are amazing. Be sure to try this recipe because you will not be disappointed!

To prepare simply preheat your oven to 400°F.  Next stir together the crushed pretzels, melted butter and 3 tablespoons white sugar.  Mix it well and press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.  Next bake for only 8-10 minutes, until set and set aside to cool.

In a large mixing bowl cream together cream cheese and white sugar.  Fold in the whipped topping.  Spread mixture onto cooled crust, be sure to spread cream cheese mixture all the way to the edges to seal it off from the jello mixture.

Next you dissolve the gelatin in boiling water.  Once dissolved add ice cold water and stir.  Stir in frozen strawberries and allow to set briefly.  When the mixture is about the consistency of egg whites, pour and spread over cream cheese layer.  Finally comes the hard part, refrigerate until set, which is about 6 hours.

Did you know that you can freeze cream cheese?  It works great and saves money!  I like to purchase cream cheese in bulk on sale and stockpile it for recipes.  Check out this post Can You Freeze Cream Cheese to find out how! This is a great tip for this recipe.

      To make it dairy free try it with fleshmens margarine and dream whip/cool whip I can’t remember which is milk free but that’s what we did for my daughter who is allergic to milk. Good luck!

  1. This is just a heads up for people cooking this for someone with Celiac disease: I bought the ingredients to make this salad, and my daughter who has Celiac disease started munching on the pretzels. She got a terrible stomach ache so we checked the ingredients for the pretzels and they contained soy lecithin. (My understanding is that soy beans are dusted with wheat flour to keep them from clumping.) I thought it might be a fluke, so she tried the pretzels several different days, but each time got a terrible stomach ache. So far I have not found a substitute pretzel…

    1. I found pretzels made by Snyder that are gluten free. They contain no soy, dairy, or eggs. I used this brand for a pretzel salad I made for a work thing and we have a few people who have celiac disease and they were able to eat this with no issues. Hope this helps!!
