Intro: The strawberry pretzel salad recipe isn't actually a salad at all, which is why I love, love, love it. It counts as one of those spring desserts that you can almost convince yourself is completely calorie free. After all, with the word "strawberry" in the title, it has to be low-cal, right? Ok. Maybe not, but I'll bet you won't regret learning how to make strawberry pretzel salad after you make it.

If you're looking at this strawberry pretzel dessert on your SmartPhone, you might find it easier to watch the video tutorial than to read the recipe.
