This was a nice mild dip. Too mild for our tastes. I finely grated the onion simply because my little one only likes onion she cannot see. :) I peeled and grated the cucumber, salted it, and came back a half hour later to squeeze out excess moisture (like you would frozen spinach), before putting it in the dip. There were several tablespoons worth of juice in the bowl when I was done, so take that into consideration when you make this - if you don't salt/drain the cucumber, your dip will not be thick. Having said that, I found it a bit bland. That may be simply because I prefer not to add salt to dishes. You may be happy with this dip with a few heavy pinches of salt and turns of the peppermill. I added 1/2 tsp each of garlic powder and dried dill, and let it all sit and meld overnight before serving. This is a very good 'base' recipe - zucchini could be subbed for the cucumber, and a packet of onion soup mix would have worked here too.
