Greek Cheese Ball

I'm always on the look-out for a good appetizer recipe.  And strangely enough, most of my favorite appetizer recipes involve one secret ingredient... any guesses??  Cream cheese.  Of course.  No-brainer.  I actually had all of the ingredients for this on hand!  The recipe makes two cheese balls and is adapted from this recipe on  I brought one to my sister's surprise shower, and another to the Waite family Thanksgiving.  Just a warning:  this tastes strangely like boursin... dangerous. 

2 8-oz packages cream cheese
3/4 cup feta
4 Tablespoons olive oil
10 green onions, chopped
5 cloves fresh garlic, minced
4 teaspoons dried dill
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
juice of half a lemon

 Combine all ingredients.  Form into two separate balls by wrapping in plastic wrap.  To serve, drizzle with olive oil and extra feta or green onion.  Serve with crackers or pita chips.
