Pineapple Cheese Ball

It's a tradition to serve this cheese ball at our Kid's Craft party every year.  It is a mild cheese ball that suites the kid's tastes.  This is a family recipe from our mom and great to use anytime you need an appetizer.  You'll need:

Pineapple Cheese Ball

2 packages 8oz. cream cheese, softened
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained well 
(this is key, use paper towels to get out excess moisture)
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped fine
2 tsp onion, chopped fine
1 tsp season salt

Mix the cream cheese, pineapple, pepper, onion and season salt together.  Put your chopped nuts in a bowl.  Form the cheese mixture into a ball.  I like to make 2 small balls out of this. (can use it for 2 different kid parties!) Roll it around in the nuts.  Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in fridge.  Serve with various crackers and holiday mini spreaders :)
