Pimento Cheese Dip

The Masters kicks off today.  When I hear that it’s Masters Week, I think of azaleas, the dogwood, the green jacket, beautiful Augusta and of course, pimento cheese.  It’s an iconic sandwich at the Master’s Golf Tournament and still priced at $1.50 (has been for over 20 years!).  My previous mother in law is from the south and always made the best pimento cheese dip.  So, in honor of Masters weekend, we share her pimento cheese dip.  (We’ve changed it a bit over the years to get it just perfect!)
