Amy's White Cheddar Pimento Cheese with Pretzels

Presented by Amy Fortes, The Flipside Cafe

1 qt. shredded sharp white cheddar

1c fully strained and fine diced pimentos

1c mayo

1/4c cider vinegar

1/4c fine sliced scallion

1tsp cayenne pepper

1Tbsp kosher salt

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1tsp fresh lemon juice

1tsp honey


Strain pimentos well, while you are shredding you cheddar, set aside.

Put 3/4 of the cheese in a mixing bowl and add the vinegar, salt, cayenne, scallion, garlic, lemon juice and honey. Add 3/4 of the mayo as well and mix.

Mix in pimentos next so not to make the color run as bad.

Add the remainder of the cheese and a bit more mayo to even out flavor and consistency.

Heat or served chilled with fried pretzels or pretzel rods, fresh veggies or crostini and enjoy.
