Pantzarosalata / Beetroot Yogurt Salad

DSC_1209

One of my recent endeavours is to try and eat more salads. As a rule, I hate salads and I am always trying to avoid them. But as a food blogger, if I can’t make tasty salads then what is the point? So I wanted one salad recipe from Greece. As always, I was looking for something easy and that can be made with ingredients easily available at home. I came across this easy and gorgeous beetroot salad and I am sure this is going to be a regular feature at home now on.

  6. what a unique dressing with the walnuts – I love beets and would love this salad

  7. This sounds like a great take on a beet salad. The ones I come across tend to have vinegar style dressings. A nice change on that front.
