Light  Pimento Cheese

Light Pimento Cheese

Mary Ann Carlile

A quick and easy spread for finger sandwiches. It's light, too. It's great in stuffed celery or small finger sandwiches on white, sourdough or pumpernickel bread. I add a small, thin slice of stuffed olive in the center of sandwiches for a garnish.

Store bought pimento cheese is NASTY! It is made with imitation cheese, whatever that is. Please just make some homemade pimento cheese. It only has a few ingredients. 8 oz. grated cheddar, enough mayo to moisten, a good squirt of lemon juice,cayenne pepper to taste and a jar of chopped pimento,drained. Mix well and chill. Homemade and delicious!!!!!!

I used that process cheese food they have and added my own olives. I think it worked. But I never did like processed cheese so that is a prerequisite here. Good combo and great instructions though.
