  • 8 oz package of cream cheese cold and sliced
  • 15 oz packages of pre sliced sharp white cheddar cheese I used 15oz of the pre sliced cheese. I liked the pre sliced because it saves time and also it is a little taller than the block of white cheddar so that you can have more filling in the center of the ring.
  • 8 oz ball of fresh mozzarella pearls
  • 1/2 cup of artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 cup of green olives
  • 1/2 cup of pitted Greek Olives
  • 1/4 cup of chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 1-1/2 TBSP fresh parsley chopped
  • 1-1/2 TBSP fresh basil chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • Toasted French bread baguette sliced
  • *Optional: Sliced Pepperoni


  • Slice cold cream cheese into strips and then cut those strips in half.
  • On a plate, stand a slice of sharp cheddar cheese up and then a slice of cream cheese, followed by another slice of sharp. Do this pattern around the plate, forming the ring.
  • Next fill in the center of the ring with layers of mozzarella pearls, artichoke hearts, green olives, greek olives, and chopped roasted red peppers.
  • Create your marinade by combining the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, your chopped herbs and minced garlic. Drizzle your marinade all around the ring and over the center.
  • Cover and allow it to sit in the refrigerator for 8 hours and then serve on toasted baguettes and *optional pepperoni. Use any leftover marinade for a bread dip.
