Strawberry Pretzel Salad Tip
The only tip I have is to make sure you spread the cream center all the way to the edges to seal the crust. This way it doesn’t get soggy with the strawberry topping. Strawberry Pretzel Salad is a colorful addition to a Fourth of July Picnic or Valentine’s party. It is a classic dessert year round.
