Sesame Beet and Goat Cheese Dip

There’s nothing like a bright purple dip to dress up your holiday feast! I had never roasted beets before, and I had no idea they would come out with this brilliant color! Roasting them was super easy, and they came out tasting much better than the canned beets that I’m used to adding to salads.

I always want to try new foods, so I know if I saw this Sesame Beet and Goat Cheese Dip at a party, I’d be digging in.
