  1. Hi, all! We hear you here! Yes, this looks nothing like a salad (horrifying, maybe?!), and certainly doesn't taste like one. Difficult to imagine a sensible person eating this, much less coming up with the recipe and naming it a "salad." We did some digging and here's a little background about this recipe's history. From several accounts, it appears to be a recipe developed as a "thrifty dessert" back in the era of frugal home cooks in the 1930s. Often it was made with strawberries (that may have been the original recipe), and it seems to have roots in Southern cooking. Some say it first appeared in 1960 in a Jell-O cookbook. If you make it, you are guaranteed to start a conversation! And if you want an alternative, here's a recipe for Strawberry Pretzel Salad: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/16080/judys-strawberry-pretzel-salad/
