This was very good. It was tasty the same day I fixed it, but the flavor really improved after it sat for 24 hours.

Very easy but too pungent.

This was good. I made it into a cheese ball by rolling it up and coating it (rolling the ball around in) with chopped walnuts. I'd make it again.

Used fat free cream cheese to lighten up the dish, also added dried chopped cherries. Used fresh herbs and a good quality blue cheese. Served with Trader Joe's mini toasts. Excellent!

This was good, but everyone was surprised when I said there were walnuts in the spread. Next time, I will add more walnuts and possibly toast them beforehand for more flavor.

My sister and I have made this twice for gatherings and it goes well with crackers and veggies, too. No changes were made.

I followed the recipe exactly and this was great! Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. I served it with crackers.

I love this recipe. I add chopped dried cherries as well. Its a big hit at holiday parties as an alternative to the normal cheese ball. I also really enjoy searving this with black pepper, Olive oil flavored triskets!
