I had a couple different get-togethers today, and knowing I couldn't be in any control of the earlier one and knowing it would be full of calories, when I was asked to bring something for the later one, I went on a search for a good low calorie veggie dip. I ran into this one and it looked to be right up my alley. I have to say I enjoyed it very much. I only made a couple minor changes. I used fat free sour cream, and added some dried thyme and some black pepper. It was delicious, and after taking my kids to a carnival where my only choices for dinner were full of calories, it was nice to be able to take something healthy to my other get-together. The only thing I would have done differently if I had had it on hand at the time is instead of regular black pepper, I would have used freshly ground black pepper. Very good recipe. Thank you.

It's OK; but it is just an Americanized version of the Greek Tzatziki - which uses Greek Yogurt, cucumber (Peeled, seeded and finely chopped), garlic, dill, and a tad of XVOO.

What a wonderful way to use dill and cucumbers from the garden! I chose this recipe because I did not have Greek yogurt on hand and wanted a sauce that could pass as tzatziki. I would definitely recommend this as a substitute. I added a small bit of olive oil mayo to the mixture, just to add thickness. UPDATE: Today I did not have any lemon juice on hand. If you find yourself in this situation, use vinegar as a substitute. However, do not use the full amount. Just add until the dip tastes right. I don't even know how much I added. Also, green onions make a nice addition.

I made this dip last minute to go along with my salmon with lemon and dill (I was a little nervous my company would find the salmon bland). It was super easy and came out great after sitting in the fridge for about an hour. Great complement to the fish I'll most likely serve it on the side anytime I have salmon.

Excellent recipe. I made this for work and 2 people asked me for the recipe and 3 people can't stop talking about it. Instead of grating and extracting the juice, I seeded the cucumber and chopped the cucumber into small pieces. This way, you could still taste the cucumber. It is a very refreshing dip!!

I had never made a dip with grated cucumber, but that is a wonderful tip. I salted the grated cucumber and let it drain for a few minutes in a colander, then squeezed it dry.

I made this dip for an office party, and ALL the ladies loved it. One comment was "I've never tasted anything so fresh and light!" Delicious recipe and perfect for a summer snack:)

This dip is excellent. I needed a dip for a crudite platter I made, and I thought about buying a dip, then I found this recipe and thought I'd try it. I'm so glad I did because people RAVED about it. People said, "it tastes so fresh". It's so light, it's perfect for the warm weather. I'll definately make this again. Oh, I didn't add nearly that much lemon juice, I added just a squeeze.
