Strawberry pretzel salad is a familiar dish at potlucks and church suppers. Fans love the combinations of sweet and salty, soft and crunchy.

This version was sent in by Elizabeth Harrison, 52, of New Bern.

She shared this story about the recipe: “I don’t remember when we started having this dish as a part of our holiday meals, but I do know that it came from my paternal grandmother, Janet Harrison. What’s special is that last Christmas my dad gave me a box of her recipes, and it included a copy of this one in her own handwriting.”

Harrison’s only tip: Don’t scrimp on the pretzels; she prefers Rold Gold brand.

She wrote: “Some call it a side; some a dessert. I just call it good, especially if you like sweet and salty!”
