Gherkin Cheese Balls

You can open my fridge at any given time and you will find nearly all of these ingredients!

Since changing my diet rather drastically, gherkins have become a large part of what I eat. They add tanginess to any salad, are the perfect grab and go snack and transform a sandwhich!

Cheese is another staple in our home. The kids eat it a lot more than I do – it is so versatile, you can do so much with the simple cheddar cheese!

And pecans – we always have pecans!

This recipe is perfect for picnics but could also be packed as a yummy road trip snack! However you eat them, you are just going to want to eat them.
