A quick and easy dish to make if unexpected guests drop by for a drink and nibbles. Very popular at parties and bbq’s.

Ingredients (serves 12)

  • 500 gm Tasty Matured Cheese (grated)
  • 2 tablespoons Pickled Gherkin (finely diced)
  • 1 tablespoon Sweet Mustard Pickle
  • 1 Brown or Red Onion (finely diced)
  • Pinch Pepper and Salt
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise of choice
  • 1 cup Walnuts (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons Parsley (finely chopped)


  1. In a large bowl, mix cheese, gherkin, mustard pickle, onion, and salt & pepper to taste. Add mayonnaise, a tablespoon at a time, and mix well to achieve a spreading consistency.
  2. Shape the mixture into a ball with your hands, on a serving plate. Coat the cheese with the walnuts and parsley.
  3. Serve with savoury biscuits and vegetable crudites.


This is so more-ish, and even easy enough for the kids to make. And you can add just about anything that takes your fancy to the mixture. Well-drained & chopped pineapple with ham, dried fruits & nuts, mettwurst & olives, sun-dried tomatoes & corn, you name it & you can add it.
