Simple 5 Ingredient Creative Appetizer: Dirty Martini Cheese Ball

October 22, 2009


My martini of choice is a Chopin Vodka or Ketel One Dirty Martini slightly dirty with blue cheese-stuffed olives (Satterfields or Flemming’s make the best in Birmingham). This recipe reminds me a lot of my favorite cocktail, hence its name: Dirty Martini Cheese Ball. Even my son, Zachary, who loves blue cheese and olives, begs me to make this. It’s great for a party, and it’s so simple. Just mold it together, let it chill for about 4 hours and then roll in nuts. It’s a sure hit, so cheers!

Dirty Martini Cheese Ball

Prep: 10 minutes
Yield: 6 to 8 appetizer servings
1 (5-ounce) package crumbled blue cheese
1 (8-ounce) package light cream cheese, softened
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped green olives
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1 Assorted Crackers
1. In a medium mixing bowl combine blue cheese, cream cheese and garlic. Fold in chopped olives.

2. Mold cheese into a ball. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours. When ready to serve roll cheese ball into chopped pecans. Serve with crackers.
