To make the recipe without a food processor, roughly chop the Cheddar, olives, and pimientos before stirring all the ingredients together in a bowl. You can also use a 4.25-ounce can of Lindsay® Chopped California Olives, drained, instead of chopping the sliced olives.

If you like, use cream cheese instead of the goat cheese. You can also try other cheeses in place of the Cheddar.
