  1. 1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
  2. 1/2 c white wine vinegar
  3. 1 (2 oz) bottle diced pimento, drained
  4. 3 T parsley, chopped
  5. 3 T green onion, chopped
  6. 3 garlic cloves, minced
  7. 1 t sugar
  8. 3/4 t dried basil
  9. 1/2 t salt
  10. 1/2 t black pepper
  11. 16 oz sliced cheese squares
  12. crackers for serving


  1. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the olive oil, wine vinegar, pimento, parsley, green onion, garlic, sugar, basil, salt and pepper. Shake vigorously to blend. Set aside.
  2. Arrange heese squares alternately in a shallow baking dish with slices standing on edge. You can arrange in a single long row, or 2 parallel rows depending on the size of your dish. Pour the marinade from the jar over the cheese slices, cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
  3. To serve, remove cheese slices to a serving platter so they are still arranged in an alternating pattern. Spoon some of the extra marinade over the cheese, and serve with crackers.
