If you're worried by wasabi, replace it with a dash of Tabasco to keep the spicy taste, or omit it.
If you don't have chives, a parsley or chervil leaf will be ok. It's quite important to have something green with the pink of the mousse. Raw beetroot taste is a bit disconcerting, if it's your first try don't be surprised by the "earthy" taste. Anyway it's much more interesting than the sweetish taste of cooked beetroot.
