Healthy Cheese Ball?

Yes, if it counts that it has kiwi and strawberries in it. Anyway, have you seen this recipe? I am not sure I had. But I'm sure going to give it a whirl!

"Better Than A Fruitcake Cheese Ball"

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 t. mayonnaise
¾ c. chopped pecans, divided
½ c. chopped candied kiwi fruit, divided
½ c. chopped candied strawberries, divided

Cream together Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and mayonnaise. Add ½ c. pecans, ¼ c. kiwi fruit and ¼ c. strawberries.

Mix remaining pecans, kiwi, and strawberries. Press coating mixture into cheese ball to make it stick. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate 2-3 hours. Bring to room temperature before serving.

  4. This sounds delicious!! I'd have to forgo the pecans because I have 2 kids with nut allergies, but they'd love the rest of it :-) My mouth is watering right now.
