Lower fat pimento cheese

Submitted by: BETTY4LIFE

Introduction

Adapted from EatingWell magazine. I reduced the amount of mayo (and I'm using the Smartbalance kind here), and replaced it with fiber one cottage cheese. The cottage cheese and mayo are blended in a food processor. No one will ever know. Adapted from EatingWell magazine.
