Strawberry Pretzel Salad
 
It is a dessert, but isn't too sweet, nor too salty. It is really pretty when you put it in a clear ovenproof dish.

I had a salad similar to this with orange jello and mandarin oranges when I taught.  It was a massive hit!

Do you make your own crème with heavy whipping crème?
