This Pineapple Pecan Cheese Ball is an easy appetizer any time of year. The pineapple, pecans, and seasonings in the cream cheese are delicious on crackers!
I couldn’t believe how easy this Pineapple Pecan Cheese Ball was to make! Not only does it look fancy, but it also tastes SO GOOD! I love the sweetness of the pineapple mixed with the savory flavor of the green onions and pecans. If you are looking for an appetizer to bring to your next holiday gathering — look no further!
This recipe is so simple and it is perfect for feeding a crowd. It took me less than 5 minutes to prep this recipe and then I put it in the fridge to chill. This cheese ball is best if it sits in the fridge overnight before you roll it in the pecans. If you don’t have time to let it sit overnight, try to let it chill in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours — that way all the flavors have some time to mix.
Also, make sure that you drain the pineapple really well, or the cheese ball won’t set up correctly. I served this cheese ball with whole wheat toasted crackers, I think I might try it on some Triscuits or Wheat Thins next time. You could also serve it on sliced baguette bread.
