Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups light mayonnaise
  • 1 (4-ounce) jar diced pimiento, drained
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 (8-ounce) blocks 2% reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese, finely shredded
  • 6 celery ribs, cut into 4-inch pieces
  • Garnish: paprika

Preparation

  1. Stir together light mayonnaise and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir in cheese.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon cheese mixture into each celery rib. Garnish, if desired.
  3. Note: Store remaining pimiento cheese mixture in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week.
Note:

Don't be tempted to use preshredded cheese. It takes a few more minutes to shred your own, but you'll be much more pleased with the creamy texture.
