greek beet salad
one of my favorites from Greek mezze, I remember the late night dinners in romantic little taverna’s of Naxos, and all the fantastic food, that you seemed never to have enough of.
I love also the fact that beets are so good for you, provide us with iron and energy, and all sorts of goodness and so I make it quite often. The other day I thought of adding wasabi powder, and big YES,… try it if you like a little kick to a different direction than garlic kicks
2 medium beetroots (cooked, peeled, chopped to little cubes)
1-2 cloves garlic finely grated
2 Tbl sp. goat yoghurt, 1 Tbl sp. mayo, 1 Tbl sp. lemon juice, 1 Tbl sp. olive oil
salt+pepper+wasabi powder (to your taste)
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
Mix all except the beetroot together well and try the flavor, then add beets and let sit in fridge for and hour or so … If you like to save it for few days, I advice not to omit mayonnaise.
