This recipe comes from my husband's side of the family. I had to ask for the recipe because eating only once a year was not cutting it. lol

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a nice cheese ball that's full of all kinds of textures and flavors. The crushed pineapple gives it a slightly sweet flavor. We used red bell pepper to make it look more festive when mixed with the green onions. Pecans inside the cheese ball and coated on the outside give this appetizer a nuttiness. Everyone is going to love this!
