Serves 10 A ’50s favorite, this cheddar spread is studded with pimento and mixed with Tabasco, mustard powder, and parsley to give it a lift. Pack it into a bowl and pass with crackers or spread it inside celery stalks.

3/4  cup mayonnaise 

1  tablespoon mustard powder 

1  tablespoon pepper 

1  teaspoon hot sauce 

2  jars (7 1/2 ounces each) pimentos, drained and chopped 

1/4  cup chopped fresh parsley 

1. In a food processor, combine the cheddar, mayonnaise, mustard powder, pepper, and hot sauce. Work until blended but still slightly chunky.

2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. With a rubber spatula, fold in pimentos and parsley. Transfer to a bowl. Serve at room temperature. Karoline Boehm Goodnick
