Marinated Cheese

VickiVicki Scalf

A yummy appetizer!

servings:Makes 6 -10
total time:
45 min (+ overnight)


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • small jar of pimento
  • 3 TBSP fresh parsley
  • 3 TBSP sliced green onions
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 8 oz. cream cheese (freeze for about 30 minutes -- makes it easier to slice)
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese


  • 1

    Slice cheddar and cream cheese and alternate slices in a row in storage container. Making slices about 1/2 inch in width -- if you make them smaller , it falls apart. Mix all other ingredients together and pour over top of cheeses. Refrigerate overnight.

  • 2

    Transfer to serving dish and pour left over marinate over top. Drain off any watery sauce.

  • 3

    Serve with choice of crackers. I let it out for a little bit before serving to soften up or microwave for about 25 seconds.
