Greek-Style Cheese Ball

Rated as 4.83 out of 5 Stars

"I just wasn't satisfied with the ingredients in other cheese ball recipes. So, I made my own and took it to a Christmas party, where it was enjoyed by all.

For a true 'Greek' theme, try toasted pita chips."

This was absolutely fantastic! The balsamic vinegar is such a nice touch - everyone asked me for the recipe. Thank you for sharing!!!
