Pretzel Salad

I have always wondered why this is called a salad because it isn't a salad at all. =) Yummy nevertheless!

2 cups coarsely crushed pretzels
3/4 cup melted margarine
3 tablespoons sugar

Preheat oven to 400°. Put first layer in a 9x13x2-inch pan. Bake 8 minutes. Remove to cool.

1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
1 cup sugar
2 cups whipped topping (small container)

Second Layer - Beat sugar into cheese, stir in whipped topping. Spread over cooled pretzels.

1 lg pkg (6 ounces) strawberry flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 (10oz) boxes frozen strawberries

Third Layer - Mix gelatin, boiling water and strawberries together and set aside 10 minutes. Pour over cheese mixture; chill thoroughly.
