I’m sad to say that there are some southern dishes I never tried until the past few years. Like pimiento cheese. I’m not sure why, but I was always a little scared of it. I mean, I guess I knew it was mostly cheese (duh) but I had no idea what it would actually taste like with the spots of red from the peppers and the gloppy mayo texture.
Instead of filling this batch with loads of mayo, I lightened it up (a ton!) by using way less binder and using plain yogurt instead of the mayo. The little bit of sugar and vinegar gives you that mayo taste without all the fat.
