Kel’s Reduced-Fat, Spicy Jalapeño Pimento Cheese

Spread Kel's pimento cheese on bread

If you are from the South, chances are that pimento cheese has been a staple in your diet since you were old enough to eat it. You probably have a family recipe, handed down from your mom or grandmother, that is oh, so good and easy to make. It’s great to see that a number of area restaurants are including pimento cheese on their menus, either as a dip, sandwich filling or burger topping. All I have to say to Triangle chefs is “Yaaaay” for including a little bit of heaven to some of your dishes, like this grilled fried green tomato and pimento cheese sandwich from Relish Cafe and Bar in Raleigh!

Kel’s No-Mayo Potato Salad (Vegan)

Do you love potato salad but don’t care for the mayonnaise that most recipes call for? Here’s a great one for you to try. I have to admit that I love mayonnaise in my potato salad and was skeptical to make this salad earlier this summer, when I went on a vegan diet for several weeks. Well, I’m a skeptic no more – this stuff rocks! And now that it’s football season, it makes a great tailgating dish, especially here in the south where it’s still hot outside on game day.

Garbanzo Bean and Assorted Olive Salad (Vegan)

Looking for a salad that’s just as good in the fall and winter as it is in the warmer months of the year? Then try this easy-to-make and hearty garbanzo bean and assorted olive salad, which is great as a stand-alone meal or side salad, especially with Mediterranean food. The garbanzo beans have a wonderful nutty taste and buttery texture that pair well with the saltiness of the olives and the tanginess of the lemon and vinegar. It’s a fantastic combination of flavors.

Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas, are low in fat and a good source of zinc, folate and protein. Pair them with your choice of olives (which have a high monosaturated fat content that has been associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease) and you have a tasty salad that also is good for you!
