Ham and Cheese Skewers

This is a really nice appetizer for a summer party, and it's super-easy!  This will only be as good as the ingredients you use, so don't stint on good ham and cheese.  You could definitely change this up by using different hams, cheeses, and fruits.  How about prosciutto, melon, and fontina?

Makes about 60 skewers

1/2 lb (3/4" thick) sliced smoked Virginia ham
1 5 oz blue cheese wedge
1 large Gala apple, sliced
1 bunch fresh watercress
60 4" skewers

Cut ham into 3/4" cubes.  Carefully break cheese into 60 pieces.  Cut apple slices into thirds.

Thread cheese, apple, watercress, and ham onto skewers, ending with ham.  Stand skewers upright (ham ends down) on a serving plate.
