    Audrey M's Note:

    This has been a family favorite recipe for many years. I believe it was one of the first recipes I made when I first got married 24 years ago. I was so happy to come across a low-fat version in a Light and Tasty magazine.

      I had to come up with a desert for a potluck and this is a WINNER! To fit it in my cooler I used a 5X9 plastic container. I cut the pretzel crust in half but it was still too thick and a little heavy. I did use the full cheese filling and all the fruit and gelatin. If you read the side of the gelatin box it warns about using fresh pineapple so make sure you use canned. Thanks Audrey for a keeper and sure fire hit all summer long.
