D’ANDREWS’ PIMIENTO CHEESE
1 ½ c white cheddar cheese
1 4 oz jar diced pimientos, drained
½ c roasted tomato mayonnaise (see recipe below)
2 slices Foccacio bread
Mix well all ingredients. Spread between 2 slices of bread. Enjoy.
ROASTED TOMATO MAYONNAISE
YIELDS: About 1½ cups
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 c neutral oil, such as grape seed, safflower or canola
½ t plus 1 pinch salt
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar or sherry vinegar
Heat oven to 400°. Toss the tomatoes with ¼ cup oil and a big pinch of salt and roast until the skins burst and the liquid evaporates (about 20 to 35 minutes). Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
In a food processor, mix the tomatoes, egg, remaining ½ teaspoon salt and vinegar together for 1 minute. Slowly drizzle in the remaining oil until a thick mayonnaise forms.
Taste, adjust seasoning and acidity as desired.
