Mezze: Beet Tzatziki

Tzatziki is a Mediterranean staple. You might be more familiar with the version made with cucumbers. This tzatziki is made with roasted beets instead and is delicious. I first tasted this delightful dip at Sofra, a Boston-cased bakery & cafe that ranks high on the M&D inspiration list.

Beet tzatziki is a welcome addition to any mezze platter. Just don’t ask me to say tzatziki three times quickly since I can barely say it once!  –jacque

Ingredients

1 pound roasted beets, grated*

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

2 cups Greek yogurt {I use nonfat; but any type works}

2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped

Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

1. Grate roasted beets {medium-sized grate is best}.

2. Add garlic, lemon juice, and yogurt. Mix until well incorporated.

3. Add fresh dill, salt, and pepper to finish.

*If you don’t have time to roast the beets yourself, using the pre-packaged steamed beets sold by Trader Joe’s can be a helpful timesaver.
