Why I Love This Recipe

I think that's how you spell it. Anyway, this is an adaptation from a Tzatziki recipe from NYTimes. I just changed a few things (like from Greek Yogurt to Sour Cream), and now I call it the Borscht, comrades!

Ingredients You'll Need

3 Golden Beets, peeled and diced
3-4tblsp Lemon Juice
1 lg clove Garlic
Salt & Pepper
2-3tsps dried Dill
1/4c Olive Oil
1/2+ Sour Cream


* Cook beets in salted water til tender; drain and cool slightly.

* While beets boil, mix all remaining ingredients together EXCEPT sour cream w/a wire whisk til thoroughly blended; set aside to steep.

* When beets are cooled to touch, add sour cream to dressing mixture; whisk to blend til smooth.

* Add beets; toss to coat.

* Serve warm OR cold.

* NOTE: this curdled just a tad from the lemon juice, but I totally did not mind because it was SO tasty! It was still pretty- and Golden Beets are a real comment-inspiring food!
