Goat Cheese Appetizer Skewers

If you’re a big fan of a local winter farmers’ market, Goat Cheese Appetizer Skewers are for you. Start by chopping and roasting beets—we used red and gold ones, but that’s your call. Whip up some goat cheese balls with your favorite herbs and slide everything on a sprig of rosemary. This simple, tasty finger food as pretty as it is down to earth.

Yield: 24 skewers
