Herb Marinated Cheese

It’s party time! The holidays are here. Thanksgiving is in oh 3 days and then it’s just ON from there. If you’re looking for a delicious appetizer (or snack if you’re a cheese head like me) that will take you minutes to make try our herb marinated cheese. After all, who doesn’t love cheese? I mean really. This is great on it’s own or makes a great supporting actor to a charcuterie platter. One of my must do’s when I have company be it a small dinner party or a larger scale soiree is to have an appetizer tray set out when my guests arrive. It serves two purposes. First, it keeps the guests happy (hungry guests are grumpy guests right) and gives me time to finish what I need to do in the kitchen while they’re noshing.

Another great thing about this appetizer is that you can make this up well in advance of your party. Just take it out before your guests are scheduled to arrive so it can come to room temperature. We’ve used Wisconsin Edam Cheese for this recipe. It has a firmer texture making it perfect for cubing and marinating. It has a light, buttery, nutty flavor and a smooth, firm texture that pairs perfectly with herbs and olive oil. One bite and you’ll wonder why you didn’t double the recipe. Or is it just me who can’t stop eating cheese like it was going out of style?
