    I used this recipe as a base and took the advice of others to add some spices. I added fresh chopped parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the cheese/tuna mixture and then rolled the finished ball in more fresh parsley. It made a pretty green ball when it was finished and ended up being a great Christmas party appetizer. Next year I might try putting an ornament top with a string on it to make it look like an ornament. The flavor was wonderful.  -  16 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The first time I made this, we ate it within a few hours of preparation and I couldn't see why people liked it; I thought it was bland. I sent it to work with my husband the next day and his coworkers not only devoured every drop, but they asked for the recipe! I made it again and found that it tastes much better if you let it sit in the fridge overnight!  -  24 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The cheese ball was good if you add a tsp of accent seasoning, a pinch of salt and some black pepper. It was sorta bland according to the recipe submitted but once you add the extras it turns it into a wonderful appeptizer. I also recommend stirring it witha rubber spatula to make it very smooth.. chill it FIRST, then roll in pecan pieces.. It went very well at a party I threw!  -  02 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
