If you’re looking for an easy and effortless appetizer for your upcoming holiday entertaining, this Herb-Marinated Wisconsin Edam recipe is one you should consider. We love the rosemary and parsley combination in ours, but it can be made with a variety of herbs, so feel free to experiment with your personal favorites.
To save yourself time, you can make this recipe well in advance of your event. After storing in the refrigerator, simply allow the appetizer to come to room temperature before serving. The Herb-Marinated Wisconsin Edam is delectable by itself on a toothpick or served alongside a charcuterie platter with toasted baguette slices. For a fantastic hostess gift, make a batch and decorate the jar with ribbon or twine for a personal touch.
