Sweet, Sweet Summer Strawberry Pretzel Salad!

This recipe really is great. I really enjoyed this salad dessert when I made it. I knew that I had to share it with others! I brought it to a family reunion and I think that I gave out the recipe to a million family members. This is a simple recipe that is a hit with everyone that tries it, which is why I knew that I needed to put this recipe right here to share with all of you! I also really enjoy putting little extras on top. Sometimes I loved to slice up lemons and garnish them on the top. I love the strawberry lemon mix, which is perfect for that summer feel. This was the perfect dessert for me to enjoy by myself on the porch swing and to bring to a social gathering too.
