    Chef Robby's Note:

    An easy and inexpensive appetizer that will be a hit at any occasion. Be sure to make this several hours or a day in advance to give the flavor from the ingredients time to meld. Can be used as a spread, or made into cheese balls.

      We really liked this a lot. Will definitely be making again. Of course I added a little extra garlic.

      Very good! Anything with fresh garlic is a winner! Made for PAC Fall 2009.

      I made something similar to this that was heated in the oven. I prefer this cold version, especially in the summer. I used dried onions instead of fresh; just a personal preference. I served this as a spread instead of in a ball. Easy to make ahead and have ready the day of a party.
