This is a pretty, pink colored creamy dressing. It is very rich and quite tasty. The recipe does not call for any salt or pepper - you may add a bit if you wish, but I didn't think it really needed it. I have tried this with dried tarragon and it was lovely - but if you have fresh, I think it is even better. Adapted from "Best of the Best of Georgia." Supposedly from a restaurant called The Olde Pink House. If 3 cups is too much for you, the recipe can be successfully halved. I made only a 1 cup batch and that amount was plenty for about 6-8 guests to have on their dinner salads. This will have you wanting to lick the plate clean.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix mayo, sour cream, sherry, tarragon, garlic powder, and Tabasco until blended well.
  2. Add a few drops of food coloring to tint it slightly pink.
  3. If the dressing is too thick, you may thin it with a small amount of milk.
  4. Chill well before serving.

DELICIOUS! I adjusted amounts to make 1 cup and used dried tarragon with great results! Thank you, HeatherFeather, for a wonderful recipe! Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, October 2008.

Good dressing! I used dried tarragon and did find that it needed a little bit of salt (I think it may be because our mayo isn't salty at all). We found that it had a little too much mayonnaisy flavor for our tastes, so we added a tsp or so of cider vinegear (for a 1-cup recipe), which helped cut that. Overall a nice, rich dressing with a smoky, adult flavor. Nice.
