Feta Cheese Ball

As you may have previously read or seen in my about me section, greek flavors are on the top of my list!  For as long as I can remember I have LOVED feta cheese.  There is a family restuarant in our hometown that is owned by two Greek men and although their menu is mainly American food, they did have a select few Greek items including a basic Greek Salad.  I remember going there as a child and ordering a side of Feta cheese.  And they would bring me a few chunks on a plate.  It was one of my favorites! 

All of that was to say that once I saw this Feta Cheese Ball I knew I couldn’t pass it up.  I needed an appetizer for a party we were going to and this was wonderfully simple.  Although simple, time is required, being that it needs to chill for minimum of 2 hours.  But the process itself was just a dump and mix.  I served it with Wheat Thins Flatbread Crackers and skinny Garlic Breadsticks.
