'better Than Sex' Cheese Ball

"My friend brought this for a potluck dinner we had at work. Needless to say, "it did'nt last long." Warning:it is very addictive. Also, if your on a 'low carb' diet it's great on celery instead of crackers."

  1. I left off the nuts, so the pretty christmas colors showed! Also added just a few drops of hot sauce...not enough to change the color! So darn good, I didn't want to take it to Christmas party!But Santa is watching, so I was a good girl and shared.To RAVE reviews! Thank you, Robin!
  2. While my husband didn't like it very much (said it wasn't sharp enough on flavor) EVERY person in my apt complex adores it, and is always begging me to bring it to functions. :) Something this quick and easy to make, that tastes this good, is high on my list.
  3. I've made this twice, not as a ball but as a spread in a shallow dish, topped with the nuts. I've found 1/3 cup green onions is enough, that's 1 bunch. Everybody loved this and I've been asked for the recipe. This makes my can't-miss file.
  4. This is definitely delicious; nice and creamy and the little flecks of green and red (from the pimiento) are very festive. I think it would benefit from some seasoning; maybe a little celery or garlic salt, or hot sauce? Very nice combination of flavors and the walnuts make a good contrast in texture. I would definitely make it again!


I am originally from Vermont, but we moved to Texas in 2000. There are so many, foods here in the south, that I had never tasted before. Moved back to VT in 2007. Texas is tooo hot. However while I was there I got to sample the worlds best BBQ and so many foods I have never had before. YUM
