Mix food coloring and water together. Pour over slivered almonds, making sure water completely covers the almonds. Allow almond slivers to soak for about 10 minutes or until desired shade of green. If needed, add more dye to water and soak almonds longer. Drain on paper towels.

In a large bowl, mix the gelatin, coconut, pecans, condensed milk and vanilla together. By hand, form into small balls. Pinch the ends of the balls to form strawberry shaped candy. Roll each strawberry in red sugar.
