Skinny Pimento Cheese

Phyllis Gesch


My husband was never a fan of store bought pimento cheese spread. I coerced him into trying this homemade version and now he asks me to make it weekly. It's delicious!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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.


1 c
reduced fat cheddar, grated
2 oz
Greek yogurt, non-fat
2 Tbsp
mayonnaise, light
2 oz
pimentos, chopped (half the jar)
1 pinch
