Pretzel Salad



Sandy Kramer of Winona shares one of her favorite recipes. “I love this salad because it’s salty AND sweet. It is ALWAYS a hit when I take it to a potluck.”


Pretzel Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter



On a cookie sheet, bake at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes. Stir and watch closely to prevent burning. Set aside and cool.


Mix together and chill:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip
  • 20 oz. crushed pineapple, drained


Add the pretzel mixture just before serving.
