Two Yankees In Nashville… And A Skinny Pimiento Cheese Recipe
July 16, 2012 § 1 Comment
I was joined last week by a fellow yankee here-my mom visited Nashville for the first time! In an effort to welcome her with something quintessential to the South, I decided to make her an inaugural pimiento cheese spread. I knew the week would be full of delicious but heavy meals out so I wanted to lighten up the traditional recipe. I found a great recipe here for inspiration but once I doubled the portion (obvs) and added some of my own jazz, the final product followed this:2 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Nonfat Greek Plain Yogurt 1/4 cup light mayonaise 4 ounces jarred pimentos
1/2 tsp salt (adjust to your own taste)
1/2 tsp pepper 1 tsp worcestershire 1 tsp sriracha or hot sauce pinch cayenne
Step 1: Grate cheese (or you can buy pre-shredded and then you can go to step 2; I used a combo).
Step 2: Combine ingredients.
Step 3: Enjoy!
A manageable process indeed.
