*walnuts would probably be good in place of the pecans
1 cup of halved strawberries has 49 calories, 2 tbsp of the dressing has 120 calories, spinach has 20 calories in 4 cups. The sugared pecans are where the calories really come in if you use a lot. but really you just need to sprinkle a few, remember they are broken up and you really don't need a lot at all. It just ads a little crunch and extra sweetness to the salad. Enjoy!!
