When I first got this recipe from a friend of mine I thought it was going to be gross, but when I tasted it, I was blown away. Who would think that a cheese ball with pineapple and olives, onions and bell pepper would be so amazingly good?
This is super easy to make and put together. The flavors get better if left to sit overnight in the fridge.

Some of the pictures were borrowed from the Internet.
