Marinated Cheese Peppers and Olives

Minimal work, fantastic results, I mean seriously, what more could you ask for in an appetizer. Because this travels well, you can serve it with your favorite crackers and take it to an office party, tailgating or Sunday football games.

But I’ve got to tell you, the way my husband shoveled this in, it would also be a fantastic side dish. He didn’t even bother to use the crackers , a spoon couldn’t get it into to his mouth fast enough.

The ingredients are simple.

  • cheese
  • olives, black and green
  • fresh red pepper
  • spices
  • vinegar
  • fresh minced garlic
  • olive oil

There’s nothing about this delicious appetizer that requires expensive ingredients.  My husband and I buy store brand blocks of cheddar cheese and slice, grate or cube as we need it. When I need olives, we go to the dollar store and get them on sale.

So in other words, this can be as cost effective or as extravagant as you want it to be. Splurge on olives in the gourmet section of the grocery store and buy a more expensive block of cheese if you like, but it’s not necessary.

How easy is this recipe to make? After you mince the garlic, cut the red pepper into pieces and cube the cheese you throw it into a bowl with the other ingredients , mix and refrigerate for at least four hours. Boom, your done.

The only hard part about making Marinated Cheese Peppers and Olives will be keeping everybody’s fingers out of the bowl while it marinates.  Whether you use this delicious mixture as an appetizer served with crackers or a side salad for dinner this is definitely a keeper. Enjoy!
