thousand island sauce


Explanation:
salsa rosa literally means pink sauce, but I think in English it refers to the sauce known as 'thousand island dressing', 'marie rose sauce' or sometimes even just 'cocktail sauce'.

Pink sauce


Explanation:
In fact, it has nothing to do with ketchup or mayonnaise. "Pink sauce" is used for pasta and it is based on a mixture of tomato sauce and cream (or white sauce/bechamel sauce)

Thousand Island dressing


Explanation:
I'm with Julia on this one. Salsa rosa is basically Thousand Island without the lumpy stuff. In Spain it's a mixture of ketchup and mayonnaise, and I've eaten it on lettuce salads and salads with a rice base. We don't eat this in most parts of the United States, and the closest thing we have is Thousand Island dressing.

You could leave it in Spanish and put "similar to Thousand Island" in parentheses beside it if you don't want to translate it. I wouldn't recommend just "pink sauce" though. That explains even less and doesn't sound appetizing.

Pink sauce


Explanation:
En argentina, tal como varios de mis colegas han manifestado, la salsa rosa es una salsa (caliente) de tomate y crema de leche (o bechamel) para las pastas.

La salsa de ketchup con mayonesa y algo de mostaza a la que varios se han referido, en Argentina se llama SALSA GOLF. Y es una salsa fría, que, por supuesto, no es para la pasta.

Saludos!
