  • 8 ounces Neufchâtel cheese package or low-fat cream cheese (nonfat will also work)
  • 1 cup white sharp cheddar cheese reduced-fat, shredded
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice freshly squeezed (about 1/4 of a lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon tabasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
  • 2 scallions sliced (just greens)
  • 1/2 cup pistachios coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup almonds or pine nuts, coarsely chopped


  • Mix all ingredients (except the nuts) with a food processor or by hand.
  • Form into a ball. If it is too hard to form the ball, let the mixture sit in the fridge for an hour, covered, to harden.
  • Spread the nuts evenly on a plate. Roll the ball in the nuts to cover. Set in the fridge, covered, for 1- 2 hours to harden.
  • Serve on a platter with a cheese knife and whole wheat crackers.
  • Enjoy!
