    the only way i would make this again is with salt free pretzels or a diff crust

    I have made this twice and every time people loved it. I never found the crust to be too salty but it might be the pretzels that I used. First time I used Rold Gold pretzels and another time PC Alphabet pretzels. Neither one of them have too much salt so that might the reason why it wasn't too salty. The pretzels give it a different type of flavour - quite a few people thought it was some kind of a nut crust. I will be making this again for a Canada Day BBQ in a couple of weeks.

    whatever you do, DO NOT use salty pretzels. I made this for my daughter's birthday party, and we didn't like it at all,,,,the salt overpowered everything....wasn't good. Sorry.
