From the Test Kitchen

A go-to condiment in the American South, pimento cheese is an incredibly tasty combination of grated cheddar, pickled sweet peppers and mayonnaise. Here, we’re making it fresh (with an extra kick from garlic and mustard powders)—and using it as a creamy, savory-sweet spread for our unique burgers. The robust sautéed collards in our autumn slaw prove a perfect match for the mildly spicy pimento cheese.

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the carrot and shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the collard greens and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until wilted. Add the vinegar and cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until cooked off.
