This is a great simple dip which can add colour to any meal or snack event. The yoghurt makes it creamy, but also keeps it light and nutritious. It is so quick to rustle up, and the vibrant pink colour is just amazing – it always gets a few comments from guests. I like to have it as part of a mezze selection with other salads and dips, but it is also great smothered on bread as a lunch. I served it alongside a harissa cous-cous salad for a family BBQ on this occasion, but it also paired great with a whole roast mackerel.

Just look at that pink colour!

Top with some toasted seeds for an extra crunch
