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!

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. The Test Kitchen
