EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Make this tasty cheese ball ahead and store in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks. Roll in the chopped fresh parsley the day of the party.

For an extra-special cheese tree, omit 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil and roll tree in 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese instead. Decorate with chopped red bell pepper, and top with a small star cut from lemon peel.
