Melissa Williams


½ cup olive oil (just plain light is what I use)
½ cup white wine vinegar- I use more like 1/4c
1 - 2 oz. jar diced pimiento, drained
3 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (or dry)
3 tbsp. minced green onions (or I have used just regular onions)
3 cloves of garlic (minced garlic in the jar works just as well)
1 tsp. sugar (I don’t usually add the sugar since I cut the vinegar amount down)
¾ tsp. dried flaked basil
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. freshly ground pepper (or regular pepper)
1 - 8 oz. block sharp Cheddar cheese, chilled
1 - 8 oz. package cream cheese, chilled (use real cream cheese)

Combine first 10 ingredients in a jar; shake and set aside.
Cut block of Cheddar in half lengthwise. Cut crosswise into ¼ in. slices, set aside. Repeat with Cream cheese. Arrange cheese slices alternating in shallow baking dish ( I use the bacon crisper container) standing slices on edge. Pour marinade over cheese. Cover and refrigerate At least 8 hours.

Let cheese sit out at least an hour before transferring to dish. Transfer cheese to platter, reserving the marinade. Spoon marinade over cheese. Garnish with fresh parsley. Keeps for a week. I don’t keep it in the marinade.

Serves 16. I usually double the recipe when I have a party.
