This dill-and-chive-flecked yogurt dressing is a riff on Indian raita and Greek tzatziki, condiments that temper spicy dishes. It's used here on a refreshing salad of roasted golden beets with crunchy cucumbers and green apple. (Feel free to slice up a jalapeno to spark some heat.)



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle beets with oil; season with salt. Wrap in parchment-lined foil and roast until tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, about 1 hour. Let stand until cool enough to handle, then rub off skins and cut into 1/4-inch slices.

  • Whisk together yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill, and chives. Season with salt and pepper. Toss apple with 3 tablespoons dressing. Arrange beets on a platter; top with apple and cucumber. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with jalapeno; serve.
