After I made a batch of olive and pimento cheese, I started to get feedback from my husband and kids. So far it has gotten good reviews when used on bagels, bagels with smoked salmon, a leftover steak sandwich, crackers, and celery sticks. That’s all good, but it can’t beat my personal favorite, the olive and pimento cheese sandwich with heirloom tomato and fresh, crispy lettuce.
I love putting a lot of lettuce on my sandwiches. It’s a good way to eat more greens.
