Pimento Cheese & Dandy® Radish Sandwich

In a mixer, combine the cream cheese and the shredded cheddar and mix on medium speed until combined. Add mayo and remaining ingredients and mix well on medium high speed to incorporate and whip. Adjust seasoning and store in an airtight container.

To make sandwiches; spread a thin layer of the pimento cheese on two pieces of bread, sprinkle the Dandy® Radish Mini Sticks on one and place the other slice on top. Cut into triangles or other shapes to fit into your bento box or to just add fun to your lunch!

Back to School Dandy® Super Sweet Corn and Tortellini Salad

Once tortellini are cooked, cool them in an ice water bath or in the refrigerator overnight. To prepare salad, combine all of the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and toss well. Portion the salad into individual containers to have ready to grab and go each morning or store in a large container and portion as necessary. Kids and adults love the simple fresh flavor and crunch of this easy back to school salad.
