I love pimento cheese. I found a recipe on a bag of Vidalia onions & played with it slightly to come up with this one. It is really good & simple.
4 c freshly grated cheddar cheese (I used mild but you can use sharp)
1 small Vidalia onion, about 1/2 cup
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c plus 2 tbsp chopped pimentos
3/4 - 1 c mayonnaise (start with 3/4 cup & add more if needed)
Place all ingredients into bowl of food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until blended to desired texture- should be a little chunky. Refrigerate until ready to use. Serve on a sandwich or with crackers or fresh veggies.
