Well, friends…it’s almost HERE! With summertime on the horizon, I can’t wait to embrace the season of warmer weather, longer days, and plenty of outdoor entertaining! With neighborhood potlucks, beach trips, picnics, barbecues, and backyard dinner parties to look forward to, it’s nice to have a couple of easy, crowd-pleasing recipes that I can turn to in a pinch. After all, it’s way more fun to spend time socializing with friends and family rather than slaving over a hot stove!

And THAT’S where this delicious dessert salad comes in! There’s no baking involved (so no hot kitchen to contend with), and it only takes a few minutes to stir everything together. EASY!

But you know what you’re really going to love? The taste! OH.MY.GOSH. This is my own personal twist on the classic strawberry-pretzel salad, which you traditionally make by layering a buttery pretzel crust with strawberry Jell-O and a whipped cream topping. Don’t get me wrong: I love that version, too. But I’ve tried to make it myself on more than one occasion, and it never turns out quite right — the crust gets burned, the crust doesn’t set, the layers don’t stay separate, or the salad doesn’t slice into neat squares. Whatever the issues were, I’ve solved them ALL with this dreamy mixed-up concoction!

Nothing quite says “summer” like a Fluff Salad, which (in my kitchen) always include marshmallows, whipped topping, fruit, and nuts. My nuts of choice in this particular recipe are the Lightly Salted Blue Diamond Almonds, which add just the right amount of crunch and saltiness without completely overpowering the dish. You get plenty of salt from the pretzels, so there’s no need to overdo it with the nuts. They’re just right!

Trust me, friends — this Strawberry Pretzel Fluff is going to knock your socks off! Salty or sweet, creamy or crunchy, it checks every box, satisfies every craving, and is the perfect addition to every summer celebration!
