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

Once you pick your cheese ( I like sharp or extra sharp), these are the essential ingredients.

Step 1: Grate cheese (or you can buy pre-shredded and then you can go to step 2; I used a combo).

Grate Cheese

Step 2: Combine ingredients.

Stir until just mixed.

Step 3: Enjoy!

Celery is really just a vehicle to get cheese into my mouth without looking barbaric.

A manageable process indeed.
