Prepare your crust first if you are using the one from my Brown Sugar Peach Cheesecake recipe. Put your crust in the fridge while you prepare the filling.
Add cheesecake ingredients cream cheese through vanilla to a mixer and mix until the cream cheese has a whipped consistency. 2 minutes on high should be enough if the cream cheese is softened.
Add the strawberry pieces and fold them in until they are evenly disbursed.
Add the cheesecake mixture to the crust and smooth it out in a flat and even layer.
Top with lime zest and optional coarse salt.
Place in fridge for 1 hour or until set.
