Marinated Cheese Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Dawn Hoover, the columnist from Spice of Life, sent this Marinated Cheese recipe to me. She makes this a lot around the holidays and for company. I know the holidays are almost over, but its a great recipe to keep on hand for an appetizer for a party. This is great served on crackers, or for those who are trying to low-carb it, use toothpicks and serve just the cheese. This comes together quickly and you fix it the night before.

Marinated Cheese Recipe:

Marinated Cheese

Marinated Cheese Ingredients:

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white wine vinegar (I used regular white vinegar)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 good lemons)
1/2 16-oz. jar roasted red peppers (about 1/3 cup diced)
3 green onions minced (I omitted these)
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 8-oz. block sharp cheddar (I used white cheddar)
1 8-oz. block pepper jack
1 8-oz. block cream cheese, very chilled

How To Make Marinated Cheese:

Whisk first three ingredients together until mixture is blended- stir in diced peppers and next five ingredients. Set marinade aside. Cut block of cheddar in half lengthwise. Cut halves crosswise into 1/4″ thick slices. Repeat procedure with the other 2 cheeses. (Put the cream cheese in the freezer for about 30 minutes before slicing. It makes it a little bit easier.) Arrange cheese slices alternately in a shallow serving dish, standing slices on edge. Pour marinade over cheeses. Cover and chill atleast 8 hours. Serve with crackers.
