Marinated cheese recipe details
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup white wine vinegar (I use champagne vinegar)
- One 2-ounce jar diced pimiento, drained
- 3 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (and/or cilantro)
- 3 Tablespoons minced green onions
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon dried whole basil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- One 8-ounce (5-1/2 x 2 x 1 inch) block sharp cheddar cheese, chilled
- One 8-ounce package of cream cheese (I use Monterey Jack instead)
- Fresh parsley sprigs (optional)
Combine olive oil, white wine vinegar, pimiento, chopped parsley, green onions, garlic, sugar, basil, salt, and pepper in a jar; cover tightly and shake vigorously. Set marinade mixture aside.
Cut blocks of cheese in half lengthwise. Cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices; set aside. Arrange cheese slices alternately in a shallow baking dish, standing the slices on edge. Pour marinade over cheese slices. Cover and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours.
Transfer cheese slices to a serving platter in the same alternating fashion, reserving marinade. Spoon marinade over cheese slices. Garnish with fresh parsley sprigs, if desired. Serve with assorted crackers.
Yield:16 appetizer servings
