Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In ungreased shallow pan, place walnuts. Bake 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown. Cool 5 minutes.
  • 2 Finely chop 1/2 cup of the walnuts. Spread on sheet of waxed paper; mix with oregano.
  • 3 In food processor, place cream cheese, feta cheese and mayonnaise. Cover; process with on-and-off pulses 20 to 30 seconds or until well mixed. Add olives and remaining 1/4 cup walnuts. Process by pulsing 4 or 5 times until chopped and mixed. Cover and refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm enough to shape into balls.
  • 4 Using 1 teaspoon for each, shape cheese mixture into 60 balls. Roll in walnut-oregano mixture to cover. Place in tightly covered container. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm. Serve with pita chips.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

When time is short, make one large cheese ball or log instead of individual balls.

Instead of walnuts, try pecans. Toast as directed in step 1.
