I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again… I love how, in the South, we give ourselves permission to call all kinds of things salads. This Strawberry Pretzel Salad is obviously not a salad, but as long as I have known about this dessert, it’s always been called a salad. It’s kind of like my Pineapple Walnut Salad. Again, not a salad. But I’m totally fine calling it one. I’m happy to add this salad to my menu any day. 🙂This is a generations-old recipe that is perfect if you love that sweet and salty flavor combo. The salty pretzel crust, creamy filling, and tangy sweet strawberry topping make it one of our favorite desserts. In fact, this might be Heather’s all time favorite. She’s a huge strawberry fan.
- 2 cups crushed pretzels (not too fine)
