I found an old recipe for cucumber balls that I converted to a whole cheese ball. The light and refreshing flavor has made it one of my favorites. I've made variations on it for three different holidays —the 4th of July version with tomato and basil was gone by the end of the day! —Shelly Bevington, Hermiston, Oregon
