Place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until firm enough to shape into a ball. Place cheese ball on a platter. Arrange basil leaves and reserved tomato strips around cheese ball like a sunburst. To serve, spread on your favorite crackers. Makes 2-1/2 cups. Recipe from Melissa’s brand Sun-dried Tomatoes. This recipe was called Dried Tomato Dip but I sure didn’t see it as a dip so I renamed it. I guess it could be a spread, but sure can’t see dipping anything into this as it would be too stiff.
