The sweet combination of beets and oranges are perfectly complimented by creamy Astro Original Balkan yogourt. 


⅔ cup (100 g) Brazil nuts or walnuts, coarsely chopped 
2 lb (1 kg) beets 
3 tbsp (45 mL) cider vinegar
1 tsp (5 mL) granulated sugar
½ tsp (2.5 mL) salt
½ cup (125 mL) thinly sliced red onion
½ cup (125 mL) Astro Original Balkan Plain 0% yogourt
4 tsp (20 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard
2 navel oranges, peeled 


  1. In a dry skillet, toast nuts over medium heat, shaking pan often, until light golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool.
  2. Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil. Leaving root ends intact, trim tops from beets, leaving about a 1-inch (2.5-cm) stem. Add beets to boiling water, cover and cook until fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Drain and let cool enough to handle. Slip off skins; cut into wedges or slice into half-moons.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together vinegar, sugar and salt. Stir in onion; let stand for 30 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 tsp liquid.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together Astro Original yogourt, oil, mustard and reserved liquid; set aside.

  5. Cut out orange segments from membranes.
  6. To assemble, divide beets among plates; top with orange segments and pickled onion. Drizzle with yogourt dressing. Sprinkle with nuts.
