    Feta Cheese Ball - submitted by Shannon Matthews

    1 pkg real cream cheese, softened

    1 pkg crumbled Feta Cheese, I prefer a seasoned feta like Atheno's Tomato Basil or Mediterranean

    green onions, finely sliced

    Black or Klamata olives, sliced

    1 garlic clove, chopped or garlic powder

    Mix softened cream cheese, feta, half of the green onions and garlic together in a bowl or food processor. Scoop onto plastic wrap. Wrap cheese mixture in plastic wrap to help form a ball. Let sit in the fridge until hard- approx. 30 minutes. Remove plastic wrap and garnish with remaining green onions and black olives by pressing the onions and olives into the cheese.

    Serve with toasted Pita or pita chips. I generally eye this recipe. It's super easy. It is very versatile. Anything can be added to it.
