Finally, a skinny pimento cheese recipe we can get behind

By Jessie Taylor

With only 115 calories per ⅓ cup, this recipe takes all the guilt out of one of our favorite snacks.

Pimento cheese is a staple of the South, but as delicious as it is, it’s not very diet-friendly, thanks to cheese, mayo, and cream cheese. This recipe swaps cream cheese for a fat-free version and mayo for Greek yogurt.

Leaving half the cheese as full-fat maintains the flavor and only adds a few calories.
