Puree the half cup of thawed strawberries in your food processor or blender till pureed. This can take a few minutes. In your KitchenAid fitted with the paddle attachment beat the butter and salt on medium till fluffy. Reduce the speed and add the sugar a little at a time. Beat really well until everything is combined. Add the vanilla and 4 tablespoons of strawberry puree. Mix until everything is just blended.
