This strawberry praline salad is one of our favorites. It’s a great addition to any meal and super easy to make. I double it for large gatherings because it never last long. The pecans and the pretzels go so well together and it’s wonderful for any holiday meal. Looks festive on the table and it’s delicious. Only a handful of simple ingredients and you can throw this side dish together in no time.
Strawberry Praline Salad Ingredients Needed:
The combination of the pretzels, brown sugar, butters and pecans is so good. Plus it give this delicious dish that toasted flavor of pecans. You can always save some of the praline mixture to sprinkle on the top once you mix it all up to make it look more festive on the table. I love to top with extra chopped strawberries too. You could easily make this gluten free by using gluten free pretzels.
Of course if you love this salad, you may love this classic too! Pistachio salad has been a holiday staple for many people and it looks great on the table too.
