Easy Family Recipes: Ranch Pimento Cheese Logs

Pimento Ranch Cheese LogsMy daughter comes home from field hockey practice every day at five convinced that she’s starving. It’s a bit early for dinner, and I don’t want her loading up on junk and killing her appetite. Enter celery logs. You remember Ants on a Log, right? You would fill the gully in a celery stick with peanut butter, then pop some raisins on the top to look like ants. Kids love them, but they can get a little boring. Instead, I’ve started whipping up homemade pimento cheese, which is super, super easy, and using that to fill celery. She scarfs them down like she’s on a celery-eating mission.


This recipe adds some ranch dressing to the mix and keeps a familiar flavor on the table for your pickier eaters. I’ve been on a bit of a ranch bender for a few weeks, and incorporating here is a no-brainer. When you make these, you can use as much cheese as you need, then store the rest in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Ranch Pimento Cheese Celery Logs

Makes: 30 filled celery logs
Prep Time: 15-20 minutes

  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Hidden Valley(r) Original Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • 1 (4-ounce) jar pimentos, drained
  • 30 (2-inch) celery logs, cut from about 1 bunch of celery

Place cheese, mayonnaise, seasoning mix and pimentos in bowl of food processor. Pulse a few times until well combined but still chunky, taking care not to over mix. Alternatively, you can mix by hand, but it won’t be quite as spreadable.

Divide cheese mixture among celery logs (about 2 teaspoons per log), mounding it into cavity.

Serve cold.
