Step 1
To make the mayo, whisk the Egg (1) , Dijon Mustard (1 Tbsp) , and Apple Cider Vinegar (1 Tbsp) together really well, then keep whisking while you slowly pour in the Canola Oil (1 cup) . Keep whisking until you have a thick, gorgeous mayo.
Step 2
Then add 1/4 cup of either the homemade mayo or jarred Mayo and stir it in to bring Shredded Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese (2 cups) , Pimiento Peppers (1 jar) , and Scallions (1 cup) together.
Step 3
Set aside any homemade mayo left, there will be about 3/4 cup left, sealed in the fridge for further use. Seal up the pimento cheese too and use it in countless ways! It's a fantastic dip on its own, grilled cheese filling or burger topping. Enjoy!
