As a little girl, I can distinctly remember going to many church potlucks with my family and finding strawberry pretzel dessert on the table.
The ladies of the church called it “strawberry pretzel salad.” Now, to me, a salad contained lettuce, tomatoes, and croutons with a hefty serving of Ranch dressing. However, after one bite I didn’t really care what they called it because this stuff was ding dang good! And would you believe me if I told you stumbled upon an even better recipe than the one I used to devour at the church?
The following recipe is for a strawberry PINEAPPLE pretzel dessert. Yep, there is pineapple tossed into the mix of awesomeness. I didn’t think this dessert could get any better but it did and it’s all thanks to one tropical fruit.
Who wouldn’t want to end a fantastic supper with a sweet treat such as this dessert? Strawberry pineapple pretzel dessert is fluffy, sweet, tangy, and just plain amazing. I encourage you all to hop out of your comfort zone and prepare a classic dessert with a twist by adding in the yummy yellow stuff. You won’t regret it and your family will be so excited about this amazing dessert. I know that mine sure was ?
That sounds like an amazing dinner! I wish I would have come across this recipe on January 1rst ?
