    Today’s French-Style Marinated Cheese cubes recipe is a multi-tasker, and has you covered for the entire upcoming season, if you…

    • are putting together a cheese board for an upcoming gathering
    • need some substantial nibbles so the wine doesn’t go to your head too fast at your cocktail party
    • want a light lunch or a protein snack mid-afternoon
    • want to give out a savory homemade present for any gift-able occasion

    And did I mention it takes all of 10 minutes, if that, to pull this together? :-D 

    French-Style Marinated Cheese CubesHey, I have an idea: How about giving a small jar of this marinated cheese to all your guests as they depart your dinner party? I guarantee you will have people begging to be on your invite list.  If giving as a gift, you’ll have to make several batches, depending on the number of your guests.

    We’re using Jarlsberg cheese in this today. Jarlsberg offers a slightly nutty, mild, utterly delicious taste, and is special enough to make every occasion a party.
