Beets with Dill and Citrus

Have you jumped on the beet bandwagon? I cannot get enough of these jewels, ordering them at restaurants when I see them on the menu in order to experience various flavor pairings. Last week I had beets from Culinary Dropout that sat on the most delicious sweet and tangy sauce.

This beet salad with yogurt sauce was inspired by my experience at Culinary Dropout. In this colorful dish, sweet beets are zipped up with lime, yogurt, and dill. If you only have Greek yogurt on hand, thin it down with a little water or milk; you’re looking for a sauce that’s thin enough to drizzle. You can use any kind of beets here. Red and candy cane beets are sweeter than yellow beets, but all work wonderfully well. Or use a combination for the most stunning presentation imaginable.


6 Beets
