Beet Obsession Part 2- This time a quickfire salad

And so my obsession for beets continues. As much as I would love to mix up some grated beets with carrots, garlic, red pepper flakes and mayonnaise, I am back to dieting and working out and so the mayonnaise gets substituted with yogurt. This salad is perfect for fall and is really pretty (every girl secretly adores fushia) to serve to even the most beet-skeptic guests.

Ingredients: 4 medium beets, 2 cloves minced garlic, 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 3/4 cup of yogurt, 4 oz chopped walnuts, 2 tablespoons of goat cheese, salt and pepper to season

Cook the beets the same way as I did for the beet hummus. When you are done grating the cooked beets, add them to a bowl. Add minced garlic.

Next add the chopped walnuts

Add yogurt, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Mix all together, top with goat cheese and serve to guests who don’t give beets benefit of the doubt. Enjoy and stay healthy
