#berrylove Strawberry Pretzel Salad

April is #berrylove month!  Here is the link to the original post for the blog hop.  I did the #greenlove, #chocolatelove blog hop before.

This was a really delicious dessert that I had never had before.  We had it at Easter and let me tell you.  It was fantastic.  The perfect amount of sweet and salty.

I strongly encourage you to make it some time.  It is a great way to use those delicious strawberries.  Also, you want to eat this within a few days, because otherwise the pretzels start to become soggy.
