Every year our extended family gets together for the big holidays, you know, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter and such. Usually by the time everyone gets together and all the dishes are on the table I am starving.

Marinated Cheese is quick to make and is an affective way to curb the appetite until the main courses are ready, I especially enjoyed it with this Darigold Cheddar Cheese. The creamy but mildly sharp cheddar works perfectly with the rest of the ingredients, you should give it a try!
