Ask the Internet: Pink Foods and Recipes?

Today’s hue-larious (sorry) question comes from reader Eleonora:

Q: I have a girls' night in coming up and I would like to have some PINK food on the table! So far I have apple and beetroot juice (purchased, perhaps not that cheap at £3 per bottle) and beetroot risotto. Maybe something based on prawns? Rhubarb? Ideas welcome!

A: Wow. This one’s a toughy. Red foods are fairly easy to come by, but pink ones are a little harder. Strawberry Mousse would definitely work as a dessert, and this Summer Borscht could make a good starter course. Red cabbage has more of a purple tint, but mixed with apples it might lighten up. I wonder if you could make Ina Garten's Orange Yogurt with a little pomegranate juice? (If all else fails, a pack of McCormick’s neon food coloring can work wonders. Pink eggs, anyone?)

Readers, how about you? Do you know of any pink foods for Eleonora? The comment section is ready and waiting.
