GREEK STYLE BEETROOT DIP
This dip is a great addition to a mixed mezze platter or when you are going out and need to take a sharing plate. IT’S WORTH MAKING JUST FOR THE COLOUR!
It’s that time of year when there are often lots of functions to go to and I am frequently stumped for something to take that is a little bit different, but also delicious.
As I had some beetroot in the garden and yoghurt in the fridge – my problem was solved. Fresh beetroot is best for this dish, but, whatever, just choose some that look at their best.
- 400g fresh beetroot cooked with their skin on
- 1 cup Greek yoghurt
- 1 clove garlic, finely crushed
- salt and pepper
- When the beetroot is cooked and cooled the skin should easily rub off. Coarsely grate it into a small mixing bowl. You will need about 2 cupsful.
- Mix it together with the cup of yoghurt, crushed garlic and salt and pepper to taste.
- How easy is that?
I was heading off to a street party so this little platter of goodies came with me. It went down very well with some of my homemade cucumber dill pickles and easy, no kneading focaccia – plus some yummy salami from a local maker, .Salumi.
