1 small jar pimentos, drained and chopped
1 16oz. block sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Place potatoes in large pot and cover with water. Boil until fork tender and drain. Shock potatoes in a large bowl of ice water to stop cooking process.

2. Hard boil eggs. Let cool, then chop.

3. Mix together cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, mustard and salt & pepper to taste. Then add chopped Vidalia onion, chopped pickles, pickle juice, pimentos and grated cheddar cheese.

4. By now your potatoes should be cool enough to peel and cut into cubes. After peeling and cubing, add to the creamy mixture. Toss to combine.
