Cheese Ball

No holiday meal would be complete for my family without this cheeseball.  It has obtained almost legendary status since my family served it to us growing up and we each still boast about the cheeseball our individual families have made.  I have been overruled in my family so we make our without nuts but rolling it in nuts gives a nicer presentation I think.


2 pkg. creamed cheese (16 oz)
8 ox can crushed pineapple, well drained
1 Tbsp Season Salt (no this is not a typo)
1/4 c green pepper, chopped
1 Tbsp green onion, chopped
1/2 c craisens, optional
2 c chopped nuts, optional

Mix all ingredients except nuts in a mixer or food processor.  If you want to roll it into a ball on nuts you can or simply mound it into a bowl.  Chill well, preferably overnight.  Serve with crackers - ritz and wheat thins are our favorite.
