Pretzel Salad is a layered salad. 1st layer is a mixture of pretzels, butter and sugar. 2nd layer is a cream cheese layer and the 3rd layer is a jello/strawberry layer. One of our Christmas favorites at Christmas time.

Your menu sounds great.

I made the pretzel salad a couple of years ago and it came out GREAT! It had been a traditional holiday/Christmas dish in our family for years too.

I used Ener-G pretzels.

    Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation.  However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to wear those soaking-wet clothes while I drove the 45 minutes it took me to get home --- I will NEVER forgot the misery and agony of that drive!  I could just barely keep the car under control, in fact.
    Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious.  I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease or DH.  Yeah, admittedly I was rather stressed out for a couple of days two weeks  ago or so, but I am significantly settled down now, even while negotiating the nutritional maze of trying to manage two
