Bringing back the cheese ball (it never should have gone out of style). Coated with crunchy walnuts and fresh parsley, it's the perfect appetizer.


  • 250-g pkg cream cheese, softened

  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta

  • 1/4 cup prepared hummus

  • 4 tsp chopped parsley

  • 2 tsp chopped oregano

  • 2 tsp finely diced sun-dried tomatoes, (in oil)

  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic


  • walnuts, finely chopped

  • finely chopped parsley


  • BEAT cream cheese in a large bowl with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in feta, hummus, parsley, oregano, tomatoes and garlic. Form into a ball, then wrap in a large piece of plastic wrap, twisting top. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

  • UNWRAP ball. Roll in large plate of walnuts and parsley.

  • To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days. Let cheese ball stand for an hour at room temperature before serving.
