  • 8 oz Block Cheddar
  • 8 oz Block Cream Cheese
  • 8 oz Block Monterey Jack Cheese or Pepper Jack Cheese
  • ½ cup Olive Oil
  • ½ cup White Wine Vinegar
  • 2 ounces Jar Pimento drained
  • 3 Tbsp Fresh Parsley chopped
  • 3 Tbsp Fresh Green Onion chopped
  • 3 Garlic Clove minced
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Basil chopped
  • Salt And Pepper


  • Cut cheese in half lengthwise. Then cut each half into 1/4 in thick square slices. Cream Cheese is a slightly different shape. Compare the other cheeses to cream cheese to get a correct cutting size. You want all the cheese slices to be the same size and shape.
  • Arrange cheese slices alternately on a shallow serving dish standing each slice on its edge.
  • Mix together remaining marinade ingredients in in a jar. Shake well. Pour marinade over cheese.
  • Cover and chill 6 to 8 hours to marinate.
  • Serve.
