Pimento Cheese Sandwich

A must have cheese spread when the southern clan gets together.  It has been called the “caviar of the south” according to the Food Network Magazine even though it originated in the North. No two family recipes are the same. It is very versatile and you could use it as a dip but my mother-in-law always made sandwiches, with lettuce and tomatoes, and maybe a little extra mayonnaise.
