Red, White & Blueberry Cheese Spread


2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons Cointreau or Triple Sec
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 teaspoon seasoned salt

1 tablespoon honey
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1/3 cup dried Mariani Wild Blueberries
1 cup chopped red bell pepper


Beat cream cheese in mixing bowl. Add all ingredients except chopped red peppers, mix well.

Place cheese mixture on center of a piece of plastic wrap. Bring corners up to meet and seal around cheese, molding mixture into a ball. Refrigerate overnight.

Remove from refrigerator and form once again into a ball. Mixture will be stiff and easy to form. Roll cheese ball in finely copped red peppers to cover.

Garnish with fresh herbs and Mariani blueberries, serve with crackers.

Yield: one 16 ounce ball
