Pimento Cheese Dip, please.

Pimento Cheese traces its origins back to 1870 in New York. Sometime in the early 20th century pimento cheese found its way down to Georgia where pepper farmers added mayonnaise and slathered the mixture between two pieces of bread (if you love cheese history as much as I do, you can read all about it here!). Fast forward to 2018, and HELLO still a favorite appetizer. I serve this with a spread of fresh veggies & crackers.
