Yoğurtlu Pancar Salatası—Beet Salad

Oh, not only is this pretty, but it is amazinly tasty!  I have made it with skim yogurt and whole fat.  Let me just tell you, it tastes fine with skim yogurt, but decadent with whole milk 0r cream yogurt! This salad is served cool or cold and is considered a side dish or a meze.
Yoğurtlu Pancar Salatası—Beet Yogurt Salad
3 to 4 large beets boiled and cooled
1 cup of yogurt
1/4 of water
2-4 cloves of mashed garlic
1-3 teaspoons of dill
salt to taste
First shred the beets.  I used a food processor because I did not want to stain my hands.  Then whisk the yogurt, mashed/pressed garlic, water and dill together.  Finally, fold everthing together and salt to taste, about a 1/2- 1 teaspoon.  Serve cool or cold as a side salad.  Yum!

  1. Turkish food looks so different from American! I'll have to get brave and try this. I've been wanting to try beets in other ways, because so far they are not a top vegetable of mine! Thanks for sharing Jules!
