Slice cheese blocks into 1/4 inch thick slices (about 24 slices per cheese block). Arrange cheese slices in a dish with high sides.

Combine olive oil, vinegar, Tomato Jam, red onion, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor and process until smooth. Pour the mixture over the cheese so that it completely covers the cheese slices. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.

Using a slotted spoon, arrange cheese slices on a serving dish or platter. Spoon marinade over the top of the cheese, if desired. Garnish with sliced green onions and serve with crackers, grapes and olives, if desired.
