Make It

  1. Combine all cheeses, worcheshire, onion powder, lemon juice, mayonnaise, paprika, and tabasco.

  2. Blend together with a firm rubber spatula, wooden spoon, or stand mixer. Do NOT mix in a food processor. Once the mixture is well mixed, divide it into two even portions.

  3. Lay out a piece of plastic wrap, place ½ mixture, and wrap in the shape of a ball. Chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, or leave overnight if making ahead. 

  4. Before serving, take chopped parsley and sprinkle it evenly in a shallow bowl, top with chopped pecans. Remove the ball from the fridge, carefully rolling in pecans and parsley until entirely coated.

  5. Serve with Dandy® Celery sticks and or crackers of your choice.
