Top Review by Lorac

The sweetness of beets off-set by a Dijon mustard yogurt-sauce with a touch of tarragon. For a quick and easy summer side dish, I used a 15 oz can of cooked sliced beets. I made half the sauce recipe but only needed 1/2 of that for 1 can of beets (believe me the rest of the sauce wil not go to waste). I didn't have tarragon vinegar, and because I was making the sauce ahead of time, I added a pinch of dried tarragon, crushed with my fingers, directly to the sauce. The results - a wonderful flavor combination that is quick and easy to make, and I will make it again!
