  oil and remaining sun-dried tomatoes.  Process until smooth. 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.
