3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded fat-free sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
2 teaspoons grated onion
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, well drained
1/2 (8-ounce) package 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 (8-ounce) package fat-free cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup chopped fresh parsley


Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and chill 30 minutes.

Shape cheese mixture into a ball; roll in chopped parsley, coating thoroughly. Cover and chill at least 3 hours.

Serve with Melba toast rounds or low-fat crackers (rounds and crackers not included in analysis).

Tip: We tested this cheese ball using only fat-free cream cheese, but found that a combination of fat-free and reduced-fat cream cheese produced a creamier dip.
