    I love the color of beets 🙂 I’m still trying to decide if I like the taste of beets though. My mom always used to make me eat them when I was little.

      I love the color too. The flavor is something that grew on me. Now I love them. This dip is not over powering with flavor. It is something that you could add spice too or other flavors to make it your own. It is really easy to make, good for an appetizer for a party. 🙂
