I got this recipe from a very sweet lady that lived in the park where we would go in our Snow Bird days.
If you can imagine a pot luck dinner with 90 grannie trying to out do each other, well you have an idea of those pot luck suppers. I always brought pen and 3x5 file cards with me so I could get recipies.
This pretzel salad was more dessert than salad, but it is delicious, and I make it often
