Very fun and interesting salad. Takes a bit of time, so be prepared for that. Also, crushing pretzels... not so easy. Even the food processor didn't want to crush them. Mine never did get that small, but I used the skinny matchstick kind, maybe the round ones are easier? Anyway, I still had many peices 1/3 to 1/2 inch long when I finally gave up on the crushing thing. There were some fine crumbs... anyway, it worked so don't be discouraged if you can't get them to completely crush down. I also added about an extra 1/4 cup of brown sugar to the pretzel mixture. I just felt like it needed it, and it turned out well. But the kids loved it. One more hint, the strawberries and bananas start getting "icky" within about 24 hours, so don't fix this thinking you'll have salad for several days. It is best for a crowd who are going to eat it up right away. Because of this I may experiment with other fruits that last longer rather than using fresh strawberries and bananas; my kids were really sad 2 days later when I had to throw the rest away.
