beet skewers

For our weekly "Wine on Wednesday" gatherings I am always looking for unique hors d'oeuvres.
This week we enjoyed . . .

Beet Skewers

Ingredients
8 ounces soft fresh mozzarella cheese
1 can whole baby beets
1 can whole hearts of palm
skewers (or toothpicks)
balsamic vinegar spray
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
Arugula (optional)



Directions
1. Cut the mozzarella cheese and hearts of palm into bite size pieces. Slice beets in quarters.
2. Place 1 piece of hearts of palm, 1 piece of beet, and 1 piece cheese on each skewer.
3. Arrange skewers on a bed of arugula and spray with balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with dill weed.

The original recipe used goat cheese but I thought it would be a little too soft.
