Marinated Fresh Cheese Balls

Mason jar with cheese balls in olive oil with herbs.

Herb marinated cheese balls are delicious and fancy. And even though they are expensive to buy at the grocery store they really easy to make!




  1. Make sure that your soft cheese is salted (at a rate of about 1/2 tsp per cup or to taste).
  2. Make your soft cheese into bite sized balls. This would be best done with a baller, but I just roughly rolled my balls by hand.
  3. Lay them out on a plate and put them in the fridge for 3 hours to dry out.
  4. Sterilize a glass jar and fill with the balls.
  5. Add the herbs and spices and cover with oil.
  6. Allow to marinate for 24 hours in the fridge.
