Holiday Feta Cheese Ball

This festive and very easy to make appetizer is absolutely delicious!
Try using a bit of Cayenne pepper for a bit more kick and just use it as a dip, not the cheese ball. It takes seconds to make and everyone will love it at your next holiday gather. They're sure to ask you for the recipe!

2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) ATHENOS Traditional Feta Cheese, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper
1 cup PLANTERS Walnut Pieces, finely chopped

MIX cream cheese and feta cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Cover.
REFRIGERATE several hours or until chilled.
SHAPE into ball. Roll in chopped fresh parsley, if desired. Serve with assorted NABISCO Crackers.
