Note: Just like the Fall makes me think of soups, Spring makes me think of salads. I love having a variety of salads in the refrigerator for our busy schedules and so we can stay outside in the late evening hours as long as possible. I will admit that although this is my favorite pimento cheese recipe for now, it is not the best one I have found. The best one I have ever tasted is my neighbor's mother's recipe. It is divine. She hasn't given it to me.... yet!
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup grated sharp cheddar
1 cup grated Monterey Jack
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Lawry's Season Salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
2 to 3 tablespoons pimentos, smashed
Cracked black pepper
Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Add all of the remaining ingredients and beat until well blended.
To serve: You can eat this on bread for sandwiches or you can spread this on toasted French bread and put under the broiler under warm and bubbly.
Grab a glass of tea and enjoy me for a visit with Lana and Lisa over at Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. I dare you not to go away with new recipes for your recipe box!
