"Pink Princess Dressing"



Green Goddess - move over - There's a new kid in town - Pink Princess! My hubby and I met in Wheaton, IL in 1992. One of our favorite places to go for a date was the Wheaton Cafe. I only ordered one thing from them - Turkey Pita with their version of Thousand Island. This Thousand Island wasn't any ordinary Thousand Island - It was pink and perfect! I have tried and tried to recreate that taste "fit for a queen" and I think I have come up with something pretty darn close. I call it Pink Princess Dressing!



This is a bit on the sweet side - which I love!

1 cup mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons Ketchup
3 Tablespoons Sweet pickle relish
8 slices canned beets
2 Tablespoons beet juice from the can - may add more for thinner dressing - so save it

Add all ingredients to food processor and pulse. Continue to add beet juice to reach desired consistency.



Perfect Princess Dressing!

Have you ever had the Salad Express Fiesta/Salsa Salad (it's the salad in a bag at the market)? They have a sour cream salsa dressing that my son loves. I can't figure out how to recreate it, so I'm wondering if you have any sour cream salsa dressing recipes! I hate that I have to buy the salad in a bag JUST because that's the only dressing he'll eat!

Sara - That Sour Cream Salsa dressing sounds wonderful. I will have to try that. If I try to whip up the concoction I will definitely blog about it! Thanks for stopping by.
