Beetroot & yogurt salad

By Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich

People in the Levant really know their vegetables, and what to do with them! We first discovered this tasty little number in Greece, historically on the fringes of the region, but you'll find similar dishes in other countries. Featuring sweet beets and tangy yogurt, it's so simple, yet so very good.
