Pineapple Cheese Ball II
Pineapple lends a fruity tang to this fun and tasty appetizer. Instead of one large cheese ball, you could make two smaller ones — one to serve before a meal and one to take to a party.
3 cups (24 servings)
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts
In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, pineapple, green pepper, onion and seasoned salt until blended. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Shape into a ball; roll in walnuts. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve with crackers.
