Light Pimento Cheese

Light Pimento Cheese


"A quick and easy spread for finger sandwiches. It's light, too. It's great in stuffed celery or small finger sandwiches on white, sourdough or pumpernickel bread. I add a small, thin slice of stuffed olive in the center of sandwiches for a garnish."

I gave this 3 stars because it's way less flavorful than what I think of as pimento cheese. I think I did improve it by blending the cottage cheese before mixing it into the shredded Velveeta. ...

I used store-bought pimiento cheese spread to make this. I would suggest you buy the best tasting pimiento cheese the store has to offer. I also put it on my homemade Amish White Bread. Personal...
