Ingredients

4 oz (125 g) Canadian Feta
8 oz (250 g) Canadian Ricotta
1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped fresh chives
1/2 tsp (2 mL) freshly ground pepper
Trimmings of your choice (ground almonds, toasted sesame seeds, ground oregano, dill, chopped parsley and ground walnuts)

Preparation

Before making this recipe, let Feta stand in a bowl of water for an hour to remove salt and soften.

Strain Feta, crumble and combine with Ricotta, chives and pepper. Mix well. Freeze for 30 minutes to make mixture firmer.

Roll mixture in small balls, about the size of a marble. Roll balls in your choice of different trimmings. Arrange in a serving dish to create a Christmas-tree shape. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tips

Substitute fresh chives for fresh basil, mint or finely chopped green onions.

Christmas balls (with or without trimmings) can be prepared up to 2 days ahead. Keep frozen until 1 hour before serving.

You can grind a variety of nuts in a coffee grinder. Pistachios, almonds, pecans and roasted sunflower seeds are all excellent for trimming for your Christmas balls.

Feel free to personalize the presentation of this recipe. You can create a variety of different shapes, from stars and candy canes to presents and bells. Why not get the kids to lend a hand' Family fun guaranteed.

Replace Canadian Feta with Canadian Havarti.
