Strawberry Pretzel Dessert
by April 29, 2017,
This strawberry pretzel dessert is often called a salad. It's a wonderful layered dish with a sweet-salty pretzel layer, a cream cheese and whipped topping layer, and a gelatin and strawberry layer. This is a great dessert/salad for a Thanksgiving dinner.
