This is my assigned dish for my extended family pot lucks. It's called a salad, but it's probably a dalad (more dessert than salad). It's really good!!! If you have to travel with this dish, bring it in three containers and then assemble when you get to where you are eating. This way the pretzels don't get soggy.
