Blueberry Pretzel Salad! I love that sweetened blueberries, cream cheese, whipped topping and pretzels can be a salad. What a wonderful world we live in!

The layers in this salad make me happy individually but together make me feel like that cartoon dog from when I was a kid.  You know the one that would eat something, float up in the air and then slowly float down with a dreamy look on his face………

SNUFFLES!

I had to Google it to remember his name, but exactly like Snuffles the dog! I have been on a sweet and salty kick so this fits right in! I’ve been eating Chips Ahoy cookies and Sour Cream and Cheese potato chips together recently – weird but true. Don’t knock it till you try it!

So this is a spin on Strawberry Pretzel Salad, which is always a huge hit at pitch-in’s and family dinners. This version doesn’t use Jello or frozen fruit but I think you could totally make it that way!

And again I have to re-iterate that when you can have this much sugar and sweet goodness at the beginning of the line of a pitch-in because it’s called a salad and not a dessert make this an amazing time to be alive!

    I made this dessert for Memorial Day cookout and it was excellent; got great reviews. I made it exactly as listed HOWEVER I doubled the pretzel layer ingredients because I didn’t think it looked like enough and my own personal opinion is the pretzel layer is awesome!
