Marinated Cheese

This has to be one of my ALL time favorite appetizers!  I hardly ever eat cheese anymore but this one is so good.  My mom shared this recipe with me about 3 years ago and it goes great as an appetizer at a Holiday party or even a spring/summer event!  It's really pretty too - so people will flock to it!  This one is Gluten Free.  You can serve this one with celery or crackers.  Enjoy!


1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3 Tablespoons minced green onions
3/4 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 (2oz) jar diced pimiento, drained
1 5 1/2 x 2 x 1 block of Sharp Cheddar Cheese (8 oz)
1 8 oz package pf cream cheese


Combine first 9 ingredients in a jar, cover tightly, and share vigorously.  Set aside.

Cut cheddar cheese in half-length wise, the cut crosswise into 1/4 inch slices - then set aside.  Repeat with cream cheese.  Arrange cheese slices alternating in a shallow baking dish, standing slices on edges.  Pour marinade over cheese slices, cover and marinate in fridge at least 8 hours.

Serve with your favorite crackers or celery!
