Pink food [Moved from Midwest board]

Not sure if this is the right place to ask...I'm trying to gather some ideas for finger foods, that can be kept at room temp. for a reasonable amount of time. The catch is I need them to pink and I need them to not be cookies or cupcakes. Any ideas?

  1. You should probably ask this in general chowhounding topics but I'm sure the moderators will move it soon eventually.

    To answer your question, what about a pink-tinted cheese, like port wine cheese? Prosciutto wrapped anything would also be pink - shrimp, water chestnuts.

      Prosciutto and figs = yum! Also, watermelon, salmon, ham and rare roast beef are kind of pink...

        I'd agree with prosciutto wrapped stuff (or a good ham). Port wine cheese can be a pink color--does the whole thing have to be pink, or could you put pink cheese on a normal cracker?

      2. maybe some liquor-infused grapefruit wedges that have been peeled? i can picture it, but have never done it myself.

        1. smoked salmon canapes
          tomato bruschetta -- if you find the right variety of tomato

            Also smoked salmon mousse. Rose milk panne cotte also comes out pink.

          2. mini salmon fishcakes, smoked salmon pinwheels, fresh salmon skewers with a dipping sauce (taint it pink with some beet juice). Radishes.

            1. Strawberry milkshakes

              Pink lemonade

              a tomato cream sauce (over some sort of pasta - maybe you could buy fresh pasta made with beets to make them pink as well?)

              Raspberry cheesecake

              Shrimp cocktail

              Medium-rare sliced roast beef
