REVIEW: recipe rating

I felt the salad dressing mix was a little overpowering. The texture was nice but the flavor was just a little harsh. It says to refrigerate until 10 minutes before serving but it doesn't specify how long it should chill prior to that. Perhaps overnight would meld the flavors better.

I consulted this site for a quick and easy cheese ball recipe for my son's birthday party. This one was a real hit! I've been asked to make more and pass around the recipe.

I've made this several times and have always gotten rave reviews and have been asked for the recipe. I don't roll it into a ball though, I just put it in a pretty bowl and have some cheese spreaders nearby! Highly recommended :)
