2 oz pimento jar
½ c. olive oil
½ c. white wine vinegar
3 Tbsp. fresh parsley
3 Tbsp. green onion
3 garlic cloves (crushed or chopped)
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. dried basil
½ tsp. salt and pepper
cheddar cheese (mild, medium, or sharp….your preference).
Put cream cheese in freezer for 15 minutes or so… makes it easier to cut. I cut the cream cheese lengthwise into half and then make small square slices. I do the same with the cheddar cheese. Alternate the cream cheese/cheddar cheese. Mix all other ingredients and pour over cheese. Marinate overnight in a ziploc bag. Transfer to serving dish before serving with crackers. Recipe can be doubled as this dip is a huge hit at parties.
