- 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh basil, minced
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- toasted sliced French bread
- assorted cracker
- Slice each block of cheddar cheese into twenty 1/4-inch slices.

This is unbelievably tasty and addictive. Today at a party I put out one of two trays I had made of it...and when that first one got emptied, I didn't put out the 2nd tray because I wanted it all to myself. Sorry, guests, my tastebuds trump yours. ;-)
