Pimento Cheese

I don’t remember the first time I tried pimento cheese, but I do remember when I realized how delicious it is. The two summers I lived in Atlanta could be summed up as an extended tour of the city’s pimento cheese offerings.

Drain and dice the pimentos, then mix everything together in a non-reactive bowl and let the flavors mix for a little while before serving.

I¬†tried putting grated yellow onion in half of the batch. I liked the flavor it added, but I don’t think everyone would like it. If you like onion, give it a try!

Pimento cheese is best served on saltines. Enjoy!
