Summer Cheese Ball
One of my friends recently hosted a beach party, and everyone was required to bring an appetizer to share. There was a diverse gathering of foods to try, but the stand out piece was a summer cheese ball someone made. She graciously gave me the recipe for it and now I’m sharing it with you.
