Homemade Pimento Cheese with Olives
This easy homemade olive pimento Cheese spread recipe has been passed down to me from my Great Grandmother. It is simple, delicious, and quick.
- 16 oz medium cheddar cheese
- 1/2 jar 5.75 green olives with pimentos drain juice, reserve 2 tbs of olive juice
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tbs freshly grated onion
Freshly shred 16oz medium cheddar cheese. (This really makes a difference in taste versus buying it pre-shredded.)
Chop 1/2 jar of 5.75 oz jar of green olives.
Mix and blend cheese, 3/4 cup mayonnaise, olives, 2 tbs olive juice, and 2 tbs freshly grated onion until creamy.
Store in refrigerator 2 or more hours. Serve.
Note: ALWAYS freshly shred your cheese for this recipe. Note 2: Resist the temptation to eat cheese spread immediately! The Pimento cheese spread with olives taste better the longer you let it set. Set in refrigerator at least 2 or more hours before serving.
