I enjoyed this beet treat at my son's. Come taste it. This adaptation comes from Weber's Charcoal Grilling. If you use red beets, red wine vinegar vinegar is fine. The original recipe specifies golden beets but I cannot buy golden beets in northern Wisconsin so used red. The beet mixture and goat cheese mixture could be made ahead and then refrigerated. And if you cannot buy fresh beets, you could work with canned it seems.

I used a 14 oz can of (well rinsed and patted dry) beets. Threw all ingredients for the beet mixture in a small processor and whirled just until well mixed then finished off the rounds. Delish! Thanks for sharing, WiGal.

I used beets fresh out of the garden and really enjoyed this! I used 3 small beets, and so used the red wine vinegar. I thought I had goat cheese, but no, so used brie. :) Thanks! Made for Beverage tag.
