Adios Pimentos

By Lucia June 25, 2010

Next week we premiere a new seasonal sandwich, so I thought I’d share the story behind the pimento.

I grew up in Texas eating pimento cheese sandwiches all the time. Never saw the sandwich outside the South. It’s really simple: grated cheese, mayo, and pimento peppers (the same sweet red peppers you find inside green olives).

For the Clover version we did a mix of sharp cheddar, roasted red peppers, dill, capers, pickled celery, and cucumbers tossed with Aleppo pepper. The pimento started off slow, but the past few weeks we’ve been selling out of it every day.┬áLet us know what you thought.
