Romeo and Juliet (Cheese and Jam)

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by mydesigirl

I saw this in a cookbook and it is so simple! It's savory and sweet and great for when you need that little nibble during the day. In the book where I found this they had a cheese listed that I've never heard of. I winged it and used Cheddar. :) I used a 3/4 oz slice of cheese that is reduced calorie(50 per piece) and strawberry preserves.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm love it! I love this as written but sometimes also add a club cracker under the cheese (and warm in the microwave for a few seconds to take the chill off the cheese). Also good with cream cheese instead of aged cheese (definitely need a cracker for that one though :) ) Thanks for sharing this great snack!
