Marinated Cheese PRINT RECIPE
2 blocks (8 ounces each) white cheddar cheese
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup chopped roasted sweet red peppers
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons chopped green onions
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
1 tablespoon sugar
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Toasted sliced French bread or assorted crackers
1. Slice each block of cheddar cheese into twenty 1/4-in. slices. Cut each block of cream cheese into 18 slices; sandwich between cheddar slices, using a knife to spread evenly. Create four 6-in.-long blocks of cheese; place in a 13-in. x 9-in. covered dish. I use a Rubbermaid container for marinating and storing. Trust me, it won't last long!2. In a small bowl, combine the roasted peppers, oil, vinegars, onions, herbs, sugar, garlic, salt and pepper; pour over cheese.
3. Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning once. Drain excess marinade. Serve cheese with bread or crackers. Yield: about 2 pounds.
Have a great weekend!
