Preparation / Directions:
Combine cracker crumbs, sugar, butter and pecans. Press into bottom of 10-inch spring form pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool.
Slice strawberries to make 2 cups (save rest for garnish). Combine sliced berries, sugar, egg whites, lemon juice, vanilla and salt in large bowl of electric mixer. Beat on low speed to blend, then high speed until peaks form when beaters are removed---about 15 minutes. In another bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form, then fold into berry meringue. Pour into cooled crust. Cover and freeze until very firm---12 hours.
To serve, remove spring form. Arrange about 7 halved berries around edge. Cut into wedges. Serve immediately. Pass bowl of sliced berries to spoon over servings.
