Pineapple Party Cheese Ball

This recipe was given to me over 20 years ago, when I was in college. It is super easy to make and I have adapted it over the years. Perfect for parties or holidays!

3/4 cup shredded fat free sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 finely chopped red or green bell pepper or mix of both
2 tsp grated onion
1 8 oz can crushed pineapple in juice, well drained
1/2 of 8oz package 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 of 8 oz package fat free cream cheese softened

Line a bowl with plastic wrap. Mix all of the ingredients together and place in the lined bowl. Cover with remaining plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hrs to harden.

Take out and it will easily come out of the bowl in a dome shape. Roll in parsley, chopped nuts or sprinkle with black pepper.

Serve in middle of plate surrounded by chopped veggies! SOOO GOOD!
