It's simple but deliciously different and I offer it up as a suggestion for your next potluck or appetizer party. For a small batch at home, I combine 1/2 can strained shoestring beets with 1/2 block of cream cheese. If you are making a bigger batch for a party, use 1:1. Pulse in the food processor until smooth and combined, then salt to taste.
Set out crackers, or sliced veggies with the dip for an easy and different appetizer.
Wouldn't this be pretty for a girly baby shower or an Easter appetizer?
It also dresses up lunch. I spread some of the beet cheese in a pita shell and stuffed with mesclun, sliced apples, pomegranate arils, and sliced avacados. I felt like I was out to lunch at a cute patio cafe. It was so delicious, I gave myself a big tip and said I would definitely be back. ; )
Maybe you already knew that beets can be yummy, but if not I hope that you too will give beets a chance. Have a wonderful day!
Thanks for reading!
