Daily Trompe L'Oeil Painting - Strawberry Pretzel Salad Recipe with Pretzels

"Strawberry Pretzel Salad," acrylic on panel, 8" x 8".
SOLD

When I got married many years ago, my grandmother gave me a book of recipe cards she wrote out, featuring many of our family's holiday favorites. This recipe, Strawberry Pretzel Salad, is a really amazing summertime dessert we enjoyed from Memorial Day to Labor Day, although to be fair I'm not really sure why that was the only time we could have it!

Although I usually just include the recipe cards themselves in my Well-Loved Recipe card paintings, I thought I'd throw in a few pretzels, just for a little something extra.

If you've never tried this recipe, I encourage you to try it out at your next summer gathering!

Thanks for looking!
