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.
