Gorgonzola Cherry Cheese Ball

8oz. philadelphia brand cream cheese
4-8oz gorgonzola cheese

one big greedy handful of dried cherries (coarsely chopped)

4-5 green onions (finely chopped)

about a tablespoon of dried parsley

about 1/2 teaspoon lawrey's seasoned salt

1/2 to 3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

Soften cheeses to room temp. Mix together with fork. Stir in cherries/onions/parsley/salt. Transfer onto a sheet of waxed paper or plastic wrap, using the wrap to keep your hands clean, shape to a ball and chill.
Once firm, turn the ball out onto chopped walnuts and roll to cover. Allow cheeseball to come to room temp again before eating.
Traditionally served w/ crackers - but this is also REALLY good to stuff celery ribs with!
