Greek Yogurt, Beet & Feta Dip (Video)

YouTube Preview Image

The idea for this recipe came from one of my FaceBook peeps.  I was looking for ways  to use Greek yogurt in an appetizer-type recipe and when I saw the suggestion for a beet-dip, I was hooked.

This really is one of the simplest dips to make (especially if you are using pre-cooked beets!) and it’s beautiful color makes it perfect for the holidays.

Everything else I might say about this festive dip I seem to have already rambled on about in the video, so without any further ado, I offer you my Greek Yogurt, Beet & Feta Dip.

Enjoy!

    Are the beets cooked or raw?

    I made this yesterday with full fat yogurt instead of nonfat and with pickeld beets. IT WAS SO GOOD. Especially delicious with some raw tenderstem broccoli dippers!

    Hi Dani: I love this dip I make it a lot and under the guidance of Weight Watchers I eat the whole batch all by myself! I bought baked chips to eat with this dip and now I make my own chips in the microwave and they all totally allowed. Potatoes are even considered a Power Food so I eat them and thoroughly enjoy them and know that I am doing myself a lot of good. Thanks for teaching me to love vegetables and not to be afraid of eating anything (in moderation!)
