Spicy Marinated Cheese
Spicy Marinated Cheese is an easy, make-ahead party appetizer that gets better with time.
olive oil or vegetable oil
white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar
1/4 to 1/2
crushed red pepper flakes
block cream cheese, placed in freezer for 20 minutes
block sharp cheddar or colby jack
chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil
Combine oil through red pepper flakes in a medium bowl and whisk well.
Cut cream cheese and cheddar cheese in half lengthwise. Cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices. Arrange slices alternately on a serving dish that has a little bit of an edge.
Pour marinade over cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
Sprinkle green onions and sin-dried tomatoes on top and serve with crackers.
Cream cheese will be easier to cut if it is partially frozen. It helps to spray a knife with cooking spray or to use dental floss to cut it.
