Have you heard of pink sauce? The India foodies will instantly relate it to the pink sauce pasta. But no, it is not the same pink sauce we are talking about. In fact, it is a one-of-a-kind condiment in the USA that has recently gone viral on social media. Wonder why? It is probably because of the ingredients used in the recipe. Created by Chef Pii - a Miami-based mixologist - pink sauce is being sold in the market since July 2022. According to the official website of Pink Sauce (that's what the name of the brand is!), the condiment is made by mixing dragon fruit, sunflower seeds, honey, chilli flakes and garlic. The website further states that the sauce has high nutritional value and includes no dairy, protein, or cholesterol.
The unique pink coloured sauce initially started trending when Chef Pii took to her social media to share videos featuring her combining pink sauce with fries, burgers, fried chicken et al. Take a look at one such video (on Instagram) where we can see her pouring generous amount of pink sauce on KFC fried chicken and taking a bite.
Here's another such video of her dipping corndog in a bowl of pink sauce. Take a look:
If you follow Chef Pii on Instagram, you will get to see many such videos featuring pink sauce. These videos in no time grabbed people's attention on the internet. And they soon started reacting this one-of-a-king (read: controversial) sauce.
