Awesome Appetizer-Grilled Asparagus, Beets & Goat Cheese

This is a simple appetizer that will take you about a total of 5 minutes to make and look like you ordered it from an upscale restaurant.

Simply cut off about 2 inches from the end of the stems and blanch the asparagus in salted boiling water for 1 minute….drain and set aside.

Once asparagus are drained, drizzle 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and grill on a BBQ for about 1 minute.

As you are heating your water take a good quality goat cheese and put it in the freezer for 10 min. This makes it easier to slice without falling apart.

Cut goat cheese into 1/2 inch slices.

Open up a bottle of sliced beets and drain the liquid.

Arrange 5-6 asparagus on a plate, then add alternating slices of goat cheese and beets.

Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper and enjoy.

    What wine can we drink if we’re having deer for diner? I prefer a white wine. Is Semillon a good option? and what about my friends who want a red wine? Merlot?

      It really depends on what wine you like. More than not, people tend to drink reds with beef. The tanins in the wine break down the fat so essentially when the drink hits your tounge it clears out the fat leaving a smooth pallet. I like a light red if there are Summery vegetables with it but you may want to consider a hearty red if you are eating a steak. If there is a rich wine or pepper sauce on the meat you may also want to choose a complimentary red to go with it nicely.
