Shape cream cheese mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll in soft, light rye or dark pumpernickel bread crumbs.
How to Chop Fresh Leafy Herbs
To easily chop fresh leafy herbs, such as cilantro, parsley, basil, mint and sage, pick the leaves from the stems and place on a cutting board. Using a chef's knife and holding the tip end down, cut back and forth across the herbs. Be sure that your knife is sharp - a dull knife will bruise the leaves. Use the herbs as soon as possible after chopping.
