My mother always made this cheese ball at Christmas.Most people are stumped as to the ingredients, often guessing seafood for the pineapple!
2 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese
1 8 ½ oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
2 c. chopped walnuts or pecans, divided
¼ c. finely chopped green pepper
2 T. chopped onion
1 T. seasoned salt
In medium bowl, with fork, beat cream cheese until smooth; gradually stir in crushed pineapple, one cup of chopped nuts, peppers, onions and salt.Shape into two balls.Roll balls in the remaining cup of chopped nuts.
Note: This freezes fairly well.Simply freeze the cheese ball before rolling in nuts.Before serving, thaw in refrigerator, then roll in nuts.
