Pineapple Pretzel Salad

Cassie *


My aunt always made this delicious, light dessert...the pretzels are just the right saltiness to the sweetness of the whipped cream and pineapple...There are two ways you can serve this...either add the candied pretzels, or if you won't be serving for some time...stir them in right before serving...I usually add a sprinkle or two of pretzels on top when serving too...another simple treat, that everyone seems to love...
