Pineapple Cheese Ball

A coworker brought a cheese ball similar to this one into work one Christmas and it was so good! Later on, I found this recipe in some junk mail I received from Southern Living. The pineapple, green peppers, onions and pecans all blend together into a very pleasing slightly sweet flavor.

This recipe makes either one large cheese ball or two smaller ones.  It is so good and very easy to make! It always gets eaten right up whenever I take it somewhere!

Pineapple Cheese Ball

2 (8oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 T. finely chopped onions
2 t. seasoning salt
2 cups chopped pecans, divided

I like to use my food processor to mix this up!

Combine first 5 ingredients; stir in 1 cup pecans. Cover and chill until firm.  Shape mixture into a ball; roll in remaining 1 cup pecans.

Place cheese ball on a serving platter; serve with crackers and strips of green and red bell peppers.
