This appetizer can be made low fat and still taste great. The nuts and the jalapeño raspberry make it slightly different than other versions and I like the additions.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 453.59 g cheddar cheese (grated, sharp)
  • 236.59 ml mayonnaise
  • 1 small onion (grated)
  • 236.59 ml nuts, finely chopped (I use pecans)
  • 0.25 ml cayenne
  • black pepper
  • raspberry preserves (I prefer a fiery jalepeno raspberry ambrosia by Praire Thyme)

Directions

  1. Mix cheese, nuts, mayonnaise and onion until well blended in a bowl.
  2. Stir in cayenne and black pepper to taste.
  3. Can be chilled overnight or served.
  4. I spread it around the outside of a platter and leave a space in the center to pour the preserves into.
  5. Serve with wheat crackers. I personally prefer Triscuits.
