Set aside 1/3 cup of the diced strawberries.
Place remaining berries into a Cuisinart and puree, measure off two cups of puree and whisk in 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, and set aside.
In a small bowl add cold water and gelatin, until dissolved. You may also speed the process over a double boiler. Once dissolved add lemon juice and whisk to combine.
Next, combine the strawberry puree and gelatin mixture, whisk to combine, and chill until partially set.
Now whisk together egg whites slowly adding salt and remaining sugar until firm peaks form.
Fold meringue and remaining diced strawberries into berry mixture.
