When I made the Open Faced Crab Salad Sandwiches for my husband and son, I had leftover crab salad. I decided to mix it with some cream cheese and made it into a cheese ball. They now request it every weekend while watching football.

Peppers and celery give this cheese ball a nice crunch. It's impressive enough to serve at a dinner party, or simple enough to enjoy on game day. Quick & easy this is guaranteed to be a hit! The Test Kitchen
