Salsa rosada, also known as salsa coctel, is a popular Latin American sauce made with mix of mayonnaise and ketchup. This sauce is also known as Argentinean golf sauce, it is a simple mix of mayonnaise and ketchup (and other condiments if you like).
In this recipe for salsa rosada, I use homemade mayonnaise which is made with onion and cumin, so if you’re making this sauce with store bought mayonnaise I recommend adding a little bit of ground cumin. I’ve had it before with a little bit of hot sauce added, and if you like it spicy that’s a good addition. You can also add a dash of vodka. Salsa rosada is used as a salad dressing, especially for cold seafood salads or shrimp cocktail. It can also be used as a dip for French fries, chips, and as a spreading sauce for sandwiches.
