Pantry ingredients turn ordinary Monterey Jack into a deli-style party snack that tastes even better when you make it ahead. You can prep it three days in advance.


  • 1 pound Monterey Jack or provolone cheese, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried whole mixed peppercorns, cracked, or 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed


  1. Place cheese cubes in a resealable plastic bag. In a screw-top jar, combine oil, lemon zest and lemon juice, garlic, peppercorns and crushed fennel. Cover and shake well. Pour mixture over cheese. Seal bag or cover jar. Turn to coat. Refrigerate, covered, up to 3 days, turning occasionally.
  2. To serve, let cheese stand at room temperature for 1 hour before serving. Transfer cheese with marinade to a serving bowl. Makes 12 to 16 servings.
