1 (8-ounce) package shredded sharp Cheddar

1 (8-ounce) package shredded extra-sharp Cheddar

1 (4-ounce) jar pimientos, with juice

1/4 cup mayonnaise

Salt and pepper


  1. Mix the shredded cheeses together with the pimientos and their juice. Stir in the mayonnaise until well blended. Add salt and pepper, to taste, and stir. Keep covered in the refrigerator until ready to use. It is easier to spread if left on the counter for 30 minutes before serving. Great on bread, celery sticks, or crackers.
