beet skordalia dip

this is a recipe i adapted from a basic recipe i found online.
it not only adds some colour to the table, but is one of my constantly requested recipes. beet juice stains like crazy, so wear an apron.


2 cans of beets, drained
½ cup walnuts or almonds
2 garlic cloves
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2-3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt, or to taste
1 tablespoon of horseradish (optional)

blend in food processor.

serve on bread or crackers.


  1. Ooh, such pretty pictures. I think I've only ever had beets once. Maybe it's time to try them again!

  2. oh, this is my favorite!!! so delicious :)
