Was looking for a different light super idea...and tried this simply because I had all the ingredients. Both my boyfriend and I enjoyed it. It was suprisingly satisfying and I would definitly do it again I particularly liked the contrast between the sweet beetroot and the creamy dill sauce and the crunchy hazelnuts.
