Strawberry Angel Food Salad

This might have "salad" in the title, but it's really more of a yummy dessert. To make it a bit healthier, I use fat free and sugar free ingredients where I can, but feel free to use the regular stuff.

1 small box sugar-free strawberry Jell-o
1 small container (about 6 oz. I think) frozen sliced strawberries, defrosted
1 angel food cake ring
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 container fat free Cool Whip
dash salt
fresh strawberries for garnish

Dissolve Jell-o in boiling water. Add in sliced strawberries and a dash of salt. Cool in fridge until syrupy and slightly thickened (maybe about 1/2 hour or so). Meanwhile break or dice angel food cake into bite size pieces. When you're nearly read to serve, combine 3/4 of the container of Cool Whip with the strawberry mixture. In a serving bowl, layer angel food cake cubes/pieces with strawberry mixture in 4 total layers. Stir to combine. Garnish with the remaining Cool Whip and fresh strawberries.
