Strawberry Pretzel Salad is the perfect addition to any holiday meal easy to make and always a crowd pleaser. Strawberry Pretzel Salad is great for the summer, cook outs and picnics! I think it is perfect for the 4th of July or Memorial Day too! You could add blueberries easily! When Strawberries go on sale this is a must prepare dish for me! It can also be adapted to a gluten free version.
