For years, I would beg my grammy to make me southern strawberry pretzel salad, and she would always oblige.
It was so good! You had red, ripe berries, creamy cream cheese filling, and a crust with a flavorful pretzel crunch. Talk about an amazing dessert! Finally, when I got older, my sweet grandmother taught me how to make the salad on my own, however, she swore me to secrecy. I always keep my promises. But don’t worry, I found an amazing recipe on a very popular website that was created by a really nice lady. This salad is almost just like my grandma’s!
What I like most about this southern strawberry pretzel salad is that it is easy to make. If you need to prepare a dessert for a church potluck or other gathering, this is a great go-to option. It can easily be doubled to fit a sheet pan when you are planning on feeding a large crowd.

Quick Tip: If you find yourself plum out of strawberry Jell-O but have raspberry or cherry on hand, go ahead and use one of those. It won’t make that much of a difference.
