This super-easy variation of the classic Southern sandwich spread features goat cheese instead of the traditional cheddar, plus minced onion, crushed whole pimientos, and garlic for full-bodied flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 11-ounce log of fresh goat cheese, softened
  • 4 ounces smoked cheddar cheese, coarsely shredded (1 packed cup)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup drained jarred pimientos, coarsely chopped
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish from a jar
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • radishes and celery ribs, for serving

How to Make It

  1. In a medium bowl, using a wooden spoon, blend the goat cheese with the cheddar, mayonnaise, pimientos, scallions, pickle relish, onion powder and Tabasco and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the pimento cheese to a bowl and serve with radishes and celery ribs.
