My non traditional take on tzatziki…Traditionally tzatziki has no beets, chives or labneh and mean no disrespect but this is my take ❤️. I was planning on making a classic one yesterday but when I opened my fridge to gather ingredients the beet was just staring at me…begging to be used. Fun fact? I don’t love cooked beets but love them raw!

PS: as a non garlic girl I was totally trying to disregard the garlic but it needed it real bad…so no, you can’t leave it out
