Holiday Cheese Log

Well, no one should be having a holiday cocktail party this year, but if you live in an alternate reality and can have that gathering, here’s a vintage cheese log recipe. Serve with crackers. These are the type of thing you see in the Harry & David catalog or in the background of pictures of a 1975 office Christmas party.
