Fruit and Pimento Cheese

pimento cheese with fruit

DSC_0940-300x201To start you’ll need:

1 tub of Palmetto Cheese – Original, Jalapeno or Bacon
1 coconut
1 1b. strawberries
1 apple
1 mango
5 jalapenos, for garnish


Wrap the coconut in a dish towel and with the back side of a chef knife strike the center of the coconut.  Most coconuts will have a score mark in the center. Strike the coconut until you hear it crack.  Make sure you have a glass to pour out the water from the coconut. Pull apart the two halves of the coconut, wash off any shells and dry off with a paper towel. Set aside.
Slice apple into thin slices. If you’re not serving immediately toss the apple slices with a small amount of lemon juice. This will keep the apples from turning brown. Set aside.
Peel mango and cut into slices.  Set aside.DSC_0954
Wash strawberries, cut off tops and slice in half. Set aside.
Fill the coconut halves with one container of Palmetto Cheese. We used Palmetto Cheese with Jalapenos.  For assembly, place the coconut filled with pimento cheese on the plate. Place the jalapenos around the coconuts.  Add the sliced fruit to the plate and use a spoon to serve.   DSC_0958
