Use your hands to shape the cheese mixture into a ball. It will be soft at first, but it will get firmer when it cools.

You can chill it for 30 minutes if you think it's too soft to roll into a ball. Chopped nuts and fresh herbs should be mixed together.

Line them up on a plate or cutting board so they don't touch. Cover the outside of the cheese ball with nuts all the way around.

Serve the cheese ball right away with crackers or vegetable slices, or put it in the fridge until you're ready to eat it.

The longer the ball stays in the fridge, the stronger the flavour gets. That means you can make this the day before you need it.
