As you may already know me, I love to make all sorts of nutritious dips and spreads. They really elevate a meal or snack from boring to exciting with minimal effort and prep. One of my all time favorite dips to make is a healthy homemade tzatziki sauce. It’s incredibly versatile and easy to make. And the added beetroot to this dip makes just perfectly refreshing for summer. Moreover it looks amazing with the bright pink colour of the beets so everyone is going to be keen to try this.
There is not much to this recipe really, beetroot is your main component and you have a couple of choices here. You can roast your own beets and then peel them and use these, but remember to wear plastic gloves to peel the skins off or you will look like a serial killer.
If you are short on time and culinary determination then head for the supermarket and buy cooked beets/beetroot that are vacuum packed but make sure they do not have any vinegar etc in them, just plain beetroot.
