2 Packages cream cheese
225 grams crushed pineapple
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup green pepper
1/2 cup onion

Preparation / Directions:

1. Leave cream cheese on counter to soften. 2. Drain pineapple very thoroughly (squeeze if needed). 3. Chop walnuts, onions and green pepper finely. 4. When cream cheese is softened (you can speed this up by microwaving on power 30 for 1 or 2 minutes), add all ingredients, mix well and form into ball. 5. Refrigerate until cream cheese is firm again. Author's Notes: This spread goes well on crackers, bagels, celery (and other veggies) or (my fave) low salt Triscuits. For a party, you can dress this recipe up by cutting the top off a large pineapple, forming the cream cheese ball into an oval, putting the pineapple top onto the cream cheese oval (so that it looks like a pineapple), and slicing or chunking the remainder of the pineapple as nibbles or garnish around the cheese ball. Difficulty : very easy. Precision : approximate measurement
