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.

  1. How long do you think this will keep? I’d like to make it with some homemade food baskets, but I’m not sure how far in advance is to far? Thanks it sound yummy!

    Hello Alyson! Good question; Paula wouldn’t recommend making more than 2 weeks in advance. 1-2 weeks will keep just fine if refrigerated in a sealed jar. Thank you for reading!

  3. Monica permalink

    curious to know, this would work with feta as well??

    Hi Monica!

    Yes! This would work with Feta as well, but we would recommend using either a block of Feta or cubed Feta vs. crumbles to make serving the cheese easier.

    Thanks for the question! Happy Thanksgiving!
