Published February 18th, 2014

It looks exotic and is a quick sweet-sour way to take in the nutrients of beets. This root vegetable is high in folic acid and antioxidants and some research suggests that the fiber may help reduce circulating cholesterol. Serve it in clear glass bowls for added appeal.

1 1/2 c. orange juice
3 T. lemon juice
1 c. fat-free sour cream
1 1/2 c. plain fat-free yogurt (reserve the1/2 cup for garnish)
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 T. chopped chives
