I loved this and had no problem with the colour. I used canned beets and fat free yogurt so it was the perfect salad for my diet. Thanks for sharing. I'll be making this again.

While I like beets I use them seldom, not really sure why. DH brought some home not long ago and while shopping a couple of days ago I grabbed some good quality yogurt and then found this recipe, some things are just meant to be. This is a lovely creation both in color and taste. I did add a bit of Splenda (I think this would be very good with some finely shredded orange zest too), not enough to make it sweet but just enough to temper the yogurt a touch. Don't skip the lemon it really pulls the whole dish together. It was great for lunch with crackers and hummus, lol.

I found this color beautiful! Used drained Nancy's whole milk yogurt and fresh roasted beets. Super fast to make! The beets were served as a condiment with Algerian Poached Eggs (Chakchouka). Be careful with how much garlic and mint you add. They could quickly overpower this recipe. Fresh mint from the garden, too! Also, added a little bit of the lemon zest. Reviewed for NA*ME Tag March and Veg Tag/March.

This is tasty if you can get past the florescent pink colour. I did use canned beets as I had them on hand and there was no way I was going to shred them so I cut them in small pieces without touching them on my hands. I used Balkan (thick) yogurt and even removed some of the whey, sea salt, a bit more freshly squeezed lemon juice, in fact the lemon flavour is what I enjoyed so much about this salad. I did not add any of the optionals. We enjoyed this with a lentil rice dish. Made for NA*ME Tag! Come play!!

Very good! Usually we have beets with vinaigrette, lots of vinegar, so this was a nice change to the usual thing! DH insisted on adding he sugar, it really makes a difference, I highly recommend using it (and wearing the gloves...)Quick and easy to put together, great for summer barbeques! Thanks for this recipe!

I'm not too sure how to rate this, so will just give comments. I enjoyed the flavors in this dish, but the visual appeal was lacking. I think I'm just used to having a sweet sour flavor with my beets. There was some of that here and I may use this to add to a sauce for vegs. Interesting recipe. Thanks for posting and I'm glad I tried something new to me!
