Old Faithful – the ever popular Pineapple Cheese Ball

Oh I can't remember ever not liking this cheese ball. It's not fancy, it's not new, it's just good. 

2 (8 ounce) packages softened cream cheese
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups finely chopped pecans, divided into two one cup portions
2 tablespoons finely chopped green bell pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
2 teaspoons seasoning salt (I use Lawry's)
Mix all the ingredients, using only 1 cup of the pecans listed and form into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Roll cheese mixture into a ball and roll in the remaining cup of pecans. Serve with crackers of choice.
