I was asked to bring a cheese ball to a party but could not find a "new" recipe so I created this one. It has all the attributes of a great appetizer-salty, sweet, savory, creamy and fresh. The recipe is always requested and there is never a morsel left on the plate. It is not unusual to see people standing around gobbling it up, it is addictive! The presentation is colorful and fresh.
I hope you all enjoy!
