Since moving to the south, there has been one traditional taste that has been thrilling my socks off time and time again: pimento cheese dip. I don’t know about you, but up until a couple years ago I had never tried a pimento cheese dip, spread, sandwich, what-have-you in my life. Gasp! After going to a cocktail party in my landlord’s carriage house a little over a year ago, I tried what might simply be the best traditional pimento cheese dip that you’ve ever introduced to your tastebuds. I could be wrong, as I’m not a life-long southerner, but I am quite food obsessed. I wrote about this recipe on here as soon as I finagled it out of my landlords mouth—a life-long Savannah resident—and have been making it ever since for special occasions. I figured it was about time to re-introduce it to the blog since revamping the brand and upping it with my photographs around here ;) While this is certainly a treat, and it’s not something I would normally recommend to make to work into your healthy lifestyle, this is a true winner of a dip and I thought it only necessary to share the wonder of it’s simplistic deliciousness.
1 pound sharp cheddar cheese (I use publix brand: don’t use extra sharp, just the regular sharp, according to Betty)
4 cans of pimentos (I use lindsay’s brand)
garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste
‘more mayonaise than you could ever think imaginable’ (this is exactly what Betty told me when I asked her about the recipe! I used more than a cup, but definitely not a whole pint, you can use your judgement here)
Shred the cheese, drain the pimentos (using a paper towel to soak up any extra liquid), and mix all the the ingredients together. Couldn’t be simpler, right? This recipe yields around 5 cups of dip.
I promise that whoever you share this dip with will thoroughly enjoy it. I brought a can to my aunts as a hostess gift once, and I think we ate the entire jar by the end of the night. It’s pretty addicting! Serve with fresh baguette, on top of a burger, with crackers—you can really get creative!
