Special Touch
Make a stunning presentation by sprinkling the cheese ball with chopped fresh parsley. Place cheese spread on a pretty serving platter, and surround it with a variety of crackers so guests can choose what they like. Try one of the cracker variety packs containing several types of crackers in one box.
Variation
Add about 2 teaspoons of a favorite dried herb—basil works especially well—to the cheese mixture for an extra layer of flavor.
