  • 1 pound cheddar cheese block sharp*
  • 1 & 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 4 ounces pimientos chopped and drained
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 box Almond Blue Diamond Nut-Thins


  • Finely shred the cheese. I mean it here, don't use the big grater.
  • Combine all ingredients (except the crackers) in a big bowl. Adjust cayenne and dijon to taste.
  • Serve room temperature or chilled with the perfectly dip-able Almond Blue Diamond Nut-Thins.


*Don't use pre-shredded cheese. Shredded cheese is coated with flour-y stuff so that it doesn't stick together, which means it won't stick together as well in your dip.
