How I love pimento cheese! I'd eat the occasional pimento cheese sandwich for lunch as a kid. I think the recipe is spot on, but I'd recommend not seasoning it with more salt, since the cheeses and pimento juice are salty enough. Also, next time I'll dump it all in the food processor to blend because I remember my sandwiches being a bit smoother. The ultimate comfort food!
