Beet-Mint Yogurt Dip

Yet Another Reason to Be Obsessed With Greek Yogurt: Beet-Garlic Dip

Like green juices and smoothies, savory yogurt isn't as strange in practice as it may sound. And it's not exactly a new-fangled concept either; India has raita, Greece has tzatziki, the Middle East has labneh, and Persian cuisine boasts mast-o-khair and this beet-mint yogurt.

Equally at home on the table as a condiment for skewers and roasted meat as it is as a dip for crudité, flatbreads, and the like, it's yet another reason to be obsessed with Greek yogurt. Plus, its rosy pink hue makes it a not-too-cheesy way to celebrate Saturday's holiday, though we're certainly not going to stop making it after Valentine's Day passes.

Notes

Serve with pieces of flatbread, sweet potato chips, pita chips, or crudité like sliced cucumbers, baby carrots, and radishes.

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 clove garlic, minced
  2. 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon dried mint, divided

  4. 1 small red beet, peeled and grated (about 1 cup)
  5. Kosher salt
  6. 2 cups Greek yogurt, preferably full fat
