In a medium bowl, mash and stir the softened cream cheese.
Add the dressing mix and cheddar cheese and stir to combine well.
Line a bowl with plastic wrap and pour cheese mixture into the bowl. Bring the plastic wrap up around the mixture and press to provide a round shape to the cheese ball.
Refrigerate for 2 hours to firm.
When ready to serve, remove from refigerater, remove plastic wrap and roll the cheese ball in the chopped nuts to cover.
Place on your serving dish and surround with your favorite cracker variety.

LOL, sorry Pat. I'm adding simple recipes to put in a cookbook for my 6 grandaughters who are just now coming to the age of being interested in learning to cook. I have them on my computer but I want to get them into a cookbook so I can give it to them for Christmas. If you get to try any of my recipes, I do hope you like them. Thanks,
