Ingredient Checklist


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

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.


Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapeños, 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.

Before slicing, peel the cucumber lengthwise, using a vegetable peeler to remove some strips of skin, for a striped effect.
