Best Beet Salad Ever

The other day on one of my staycation trips I had a Beet Knick wrap at the newly open 86 this! wrap place in Ellsworth. The flavor that made this wrap was the beet salad. I immediately had to replicate the beet salad with the pungent flavors of garlic, lemon and a lot of garlic. To die for!

Best beet salad ever:
  • 3 large raw red beets
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 oz sheep’s milk feta (or any full-fat feta) – since it is salty, there is no extra salt needed
  • 2 TB of dried or fresh dill
Clean the beets, cut off the ends, and cut each beet in half. Now, slice each half beet into 1/2 inch thick slices and place into a vegetable steamer. Boil the water and steam the beets in the vegetable steamer over medium heat for 25min (or until a knife tip cuts softly into the beets).
Cool the beets. Then cut the beets into small dice. In a blender make the dressing: add the Greek yogurt, the dill, garlic cloves, feta, pepper and lemon juice and blend. Pour over the beets and gently mix. Cool so that the flavors can combine. Serve in a wrap, on a sandwich, as a side or a salad. But in any case, enjoy!!
