A fun appetizer. The idea was inspired by FamilyFun magazine, but the cheese ball recipe is my own. For the garnish, just reference the picture and use your imagination. The original recipe suggests a scallion ribbon and red pepper gift tag and polka dots. I didnt have those things so I improvised with a tomato and some sliced black olives. Serve with crackers.
