Rose Mary's notes for this recipe:
I had this recipe for years, before I decided to make it. I thought there were not enough ingredients to make it a good recipe. But, boy was I ever wrong. Once I made it, it became a family & friend favorite right away. Sometimes the simplest of ingredients makes the best recipe, and this one is no exception. You can make it in a large extra serving size Graham cracker crust, or as I prefer to do on special occassions, make it in a spring form pan, and freeze it, and serve it on a hot summers day. It really makes a refreshing and cool dessert. It is great anytime, no need to wait for summer.

NOTE:If you are using a premade graham crust, use 8 ounce size cool whip, if you are using a SPRINGFORM PAN then use 12 ounce of cool whip.
FOR THE CRUST:Toast the pecans in preheated 375 degree oven for 5 -7 minutes. COOL. Mix cooled nuts with remaining ingredients and press into bottom and up the sides at least one inch, of a 9 inch spring form pan. Freeze at least 15 minutes before filling.
Empty yogurt into a large bowl, then add the tub of whipped topping. Stir to blend. Add red food color if using, then add the chopped strawberries, and stir gently till mixed. Spoon mixture into prepared crust. Freeze for about 4 hours or over night.
Note: You may top the pie with additional cool whip if desired, and garnish top with additional slices of fresh strawberries. Remove pie from freezer about 20 minutes prior to serving for easier cutting. Quick easy and refreshing.

Thank you Cindy. So glad to have you back. Yes it is very good, and the best part is it is so easy, and you can just as easily use other types of fruits as well like Blueberries, or peaches, or your own choice of fruits. Thanks again.

I see you havn't gotten your "lightly salted" changed yet.
Did you try using the instructions I gave you when I was trying to help??? Maybe I wasn't too clear, if so, I'm sorry.
