So delicious, you'll never want store-bought pimento cheese again!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This lightened-up version of a classic Southern spread is super yummy. We loved the creamy combination of the light mayo and Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt adds a very slight tang. It's simple to make and after tasting it you'll never buy store-bought spread again. Great on a sandwich, on top of crackers or dipped into veggies.
