What's for lunch this week: Pimento Cheese sandwich
The primary way pimento cheese is eaten is as a sandwich on soft white bread, and is considered a Southern comfort food.
The pimento or cherry pepper is a variety of large, red, heart-shaped chili pepper (Capsicum annuum). The flesh of the pimento is sweet, succulent and more aromatic than that of the red bell pepper.
"Pimiento" is the Spanish word used in English.
