Author Notes

Pimento cheese sandwiches are a Southern tradition. This version came about when I wanted to make pimento cheese and all I had was pimento stuffed green olives. Since that experiment, there was no going back to the original recipe. —nannydeb

Former restaurant manager (and waitress, bartender, etc). I love food: eating, trying new recipes, shopping for it, talking/emailing about it, etc. My foodie friend and pen pal got me interested in recipe contests and also turned me on to food52 and now I'm obsessed!

Holy Moley, Batman! I love olives! What a great idea! I think I'd probably end up adding more than 2 T though. Funny how easy it is to come up with something new and great that really is a no-brainer.
