I also thought that many of you may be getting a little tired of all the sweets I have blogged about, so I am adding a very simple but yet delicious appetizer. I made this to take to a party and to my surprise, there wasn’t any left over to bring back home. What makes this recipe interesting besides the taste; it has an array of colors that make it very tempting to try. I have found that when food is presented attractively and looks eye-catching, people gravitate to that dish. This recipe needs to be made in advance, so it may help many of you who are short on time. Prepare it the night before and cover it real good so you can “throw” it together the day of your event. As simple as this dish is, it’s one that taste as good as it looks. Since the holidays are going to come up fast, this is one recipe that will go great at any party you’re attending.

Ingredients
Marinade
Cheese
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Combine first 10 ingredients in a jar; cover tightly, shake vigorously. Set marinade aside.
  2. Cut block of cheddar cheese in half lengthwise. Cut crosswise into ¼ inch thick slices; set aside. Repeat procedure with cream cheese. Stand cheese slices on edge in shallow dish, alternating types of cheese. Pour marinade over cheese. Cover and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours.
  3. Transfer rows of marinated cheese to a serving platter in the same alternating fashion, reserving marinade. Spoon marinade over cheese slices. Garnish, if desired. Serve with assorted crackers.
Recipe Notes

Garnish with fresh parsley sprigs.

**If you’re short on time, forgo making the Marinade. You can use an 8-oz. bottle of zesty Italian dressing instead. You just won’t have the color of the pimiento. If you garnish this with parsley, it will “spruce” it up.
