1 pkg Great Value Cream Cheese (8-oz.)
1 tbsp Great Value Dijon Mustard plus 1 ½ tsp.
0.25 cup Green Bell Pepper finely chopped
2 tbsp Great Value Dill Pickles finely chopped
4 Great Value Green Olives finely chopped
1 tbsp White Onion finely minced
1.25 cups Great Value Aged Cheddar Cheese shredded
0.5 cup Pecan Halves finely chopped


  1. In a medium bowl and using an electric hand-mixer, beat cream cheese and mustard until smooth and creamy; set aside. On a shallow plate combine bell pepper, pickle, olives and onion. Using a paper towel, lightly dab to absorb excess moisture. Add to cream cheese mixture; mix well.
  2. Gently fold in Cheddar. Place mixture on a large sheet of wax paper and shape into a ball. Cover and refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes or until cheese is firm.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small dry skillet cook pecans over medium-low heat 6 minutes or until lightly toasted. Place toasted pecans in a shallow dish; set aside to cool.
  4. Cover cheese ball with plastic wrap and shape into a well-rounded ball. Remove plastic wrap and roll the ball in pecans until evenly coated. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Serve with crackers, breads and raw vegetables.
