Plan Ahead: Make cheese ball
one day ahead. Wrap in plastic
and refrigerate. Use left over
ham cut with a mandolin to get
ultra thin strips.
2 (8 oz.) pkgs cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 bunch green onions
10 slices ultra thin ham or chipped beef
1½-2 cups chopped nuts
1. In a medium bowl mix the softened cream
cheese with mayonnaise and lemon juice.
2. Rinse off the onions. Trim the ends. Cut the
onions, stem and all into tiny pieces with scissors
into the bowl. Stir onions and ham or beef
strips into the cream cheese mixture.
Form into a ball. Roll in the chopped nuts of
choice. I prefer cashews. Cover in plastic and
refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
Tip: This makes enough for a party. Cut recipe in
½ if using just for your family.
Serve with: Favorite crackers.
