Perfect Pimiento Spread

I know you are thinking I misspelled this, because I always thought is was p-i-m-e-n-t-o but according to the little jar there is another “i” in there. So there you go.

Here is my favorite pimiento spread recipe. You can make a sandwich with it, serve it in an omelet with some fluffy eggs or serve it the best way – as an appetizer with toasted baguette slices or crackers.

4 oz. extra sharp white cheddar cheese, finely grated
4 oz. extra sharp yellow cheddar cheese, finely grated
½ c. mayonnaise
Half of a 4 oz. jar of pimientos, drained and chopped
2 heaping tbs. hot picante sauce (a hot salsa that is not too chunky will also work)
½ tsp. sugar
¼ tsp. pepper
1/3 c. chopped green olives
1 tbs. olive juice
3 tbs. chopped fresh parsley

Very simple: Mix it all together. Chill at least 30 minutes so the flavors can “speak” to each other. Serve with toasted baguette slices or crackers.

Hi Becky,

Your Slo Joe BBQ recipe is a huge hit with me and everyone who has tried it! Thank you! And I happen to love pimento spread. Tea sandwiches, with the crust cut off, is a lost art! Sherry
