The Southern Cheese Dip–Pimento Cheese

My sister came to Charleston, for her first time, this weekend to visit and I was so excited to give her the real Charleston experience.  That entails drinks on Shem Creek, visist to Sullivan’s Island, the beach, The Battery, Rainbow Row, Broad Street, shrimp and grits and of course pimento cheese.  Pimento cheese is a southern snack and it is delicious.  I knew when Kara was getting in on a late flight she would be hungry and this would be the prefect welcome snack.

Pimento cheese is a chunky dip that normally has cheddar cheese, mayonnaise and pimentos.  I found my recipe from The Glass Onion by Chef Sarah O’Kelley.  This version has mayo, pimentos, green onions, cayenne pepper, salt, paper and a dash of hot sauce.  It is the best pimento cheese I’ve had in Charleston yet.  It is the perfect consistency and full of flavor.
