Greek-Style Cheese Ball


"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. You can also experiment with other Greek-themed ingredient options such as sun-dried tomatoes, Kalamata or green olives, pepperoncini, etc. Surround cheese balls with your favorite crackers. For a true 'Greek' theme, try toasted pita chips."

I only used 1/4 cup of pine nuts, and this was delicious!

This is really good. The balsamic is a nice touch. However, it was a little heavy on the garlic. I didn't mind it but others commented on it.

This was yummy. I substituted pecans for pine nuts because they were unavailable at my store. I found I had a bit of excess pecans at the end, I might just use 3/4 of a cup. I also altered the ...
