Prep 20 mins
Nannies Pimiento Cheese
Ingredients
  • 1/4  cup  chopped white onion
  • 1  fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded, stem removed, and chopped (optional)
  • 1 - 2  cloves  garlic, chopped
  • 8  ounces  medium yellow cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup)
  • 4  ounces  sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)
  • 1 4  ounce jar  diced pimiento, drained
  • 1/3  cup  mayonnaise, or more to taste
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground white pepper, or more to taste
  • 1/8  teaspoon  bottled hot pepper sauce (optional)
  • 2 - 3  medium  cucumbers, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  •  Celery leaves (optional)
Directions

1. In a food processor, combine the onion, jalapeno (if using), and garlic. Cover and process with several on/off turns to finely chop.

2. In a large bowl combine the cheeses, pimiento, processed vegetables, and mayonnaise; mix just until combined. Season with white pepper and, if desired, hot pepper sauce. Serve cheese spread on cucumber slices. Top with celery leaves if desired.

From the Test Kitchen*
  • Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapenos, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
Pretty Presentation
  • Before slicing, peel the cucumber lengthwise, using a vegetable peeler to remove some strips of skin, for a striped effect.
