Refreshing this blogpost from years ago when I shared this recipe.


Today I attended a holiday cookie swap party of my friend L. who is a fabulous cook.  She makes the best brunch items and the absolute best grits I've ever had.  Ever.

So I thought I would share with you all a wonderful and easy appetizer that is one of my favorites to take to Christmas parties.

It is called Marinated Cheese.

Last week as I was preparing it for an Ornament Exchange party, I had you all in mind, so I was taking pictures during the process.  Well, life does not abide by my perfect timing and something came up and I put my camera down and didn't pick it back up.   I think you will still be able to get the jest of the recipe.

I place the cheeses in a container to marinate in the frig. I usually take my tray and prepare it at the party so as not to lose all the marinade.

Love this Tupperware item for mixes and dressings.

  • 3 tbsp Green onions

  • 3 tbsp Parsley, fresh
