Marinated Christmas Cheese


  • 1/2 lb sharp cheddar cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1 brick cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup aged sherry vinegar
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1 x 14oz jar roasted red peppers, drained and chopped


  • Place the cheese in a large container with a lid, alternating the cheese pieces so it looks nice. In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, honey, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, green onions, garlic, basil, parsley and dill. Stir in the chopped red peppers. Pour the marinade over the cheese. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. Serve with crackers.
