Beets with a Creamy Yogurt Dill Sauce

We made the most delicious and refreshing beet recipe for our farm dinner this past weekend.  I hope you enjoy it!


All the beets from your box, boiled, peeled, cooled & quartered

1 cup whole milk plain yogurt

1/2 cup sour cream

3 cloves of garlic, minced fine

1/2 bunch of dill, minced fine

1/2 bunch of chives, minced fine

1/4 cup red onion, minced fine

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Good sea salt, to taste


In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together all of the ingredients except for the beets.  Add a good pinch of salt, taste, and adjust the salt and the lemon juice if needed.  We like ours very lemon-y!  At this point you can either mix this yogurt sauce into the beets (which will turn everything into a lovely shade of fluorescent pink) or spoon the beets onto a serving platter and spoon the yogurt sauce on top of that (keeping the sauce white).  I like the pink version!
