Take a dip on the adventurous side with a party-perfect Pimento Dip.

Pimentos and cheese… how could you go wrong? Everyone loves the sweet pop of pimento flavor, and this appetizer, which also features creamy cheddar cheese, puts more classic and boring appetizers to shame. Buffalo, ranch and sour cream, while delicious, fall a bit short on the excitement-seeking chef’s radar. Pimento dip incorporates chives, Worcestershire sauce and garlicky flavor into a Greek yogurt-based dip that is anything, but boring. Bonus: The mix of protein in the dip and complex carbs from salty, crispy whole wheat crackers, ensure this snack delivers more than just instant gratification.

Serve this Easy Cheesy Pimento Dip on a slice of whole wheat bread instead of crackers, if you’d like. It’s delicious any way you choose to eat it!
