Charlene’s Shingled Cheese

Need a great appetizer for a get together?  My friend Charlene brought this wonderful treat, to a party recently.  This recipe, is one I couldn’t wait to share.

Make both parts ahead and pour vinaigrette over right before serving. Serve with crackers or baguette.
Cheese:
On a platter, make rows like shingles of sharp cheese and cream cheese. Alternate sharp cheese slices with cream cheese slices. You can stack them up side by side or lay flat.Before serving, drizzle this vinaigrette on top and garnish with whatever fresh herbs you have on hand.
Vinaigrette:
Mix together:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
handful of fresh parsley, chopped
handful of fresh basil, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried
Salt and pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
Minced green onion or onion chives, 2-3 tablespoons or to taste
Chopped pimiento or chopped roasted or fresh red bell pepper
