2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
cucumber, peeled and diced
This dip is *so* fresh and wonderful, the perfect complement to summer veggies or buttery crackers. I added some dill and celery salt but the grated cucumber is the real star of this show. [Don't forget to seed the cuke!] Even with light mayo and Neufchatel it was creamy and the consistency didn't suffer at all.
I served this at a party and not one person liked this. I will not make this again.
I doubled the cucumber because I have so many in my garden, and loved this with wheat thins or in a wrap with ham and tomatoes.
This was really nice. I used only half an onion and seeded the cucumber before chopping. I also added about 2 tbsp. of hot sauce. I'm not sure I would've liked it with chips, but it would be great with a veggie platter or some nice crackers. I used this in an appetizer - baked and cooled wonton wrappers in muffin tins, spooned in a small amount of the dip and topped it with shredded garlic chicken.
I loved this recipe. I needed something to bring to a social gathering and it was gone after just a bit. I did omit the onion because I did not have any but added onion powder which worked nicely. I also added dill. Very Tasty. Also made it with low fat cream cheese and light mayo so it would be too bad for you. This is a keeper.
This was awesome. I also added about a tablespoon or so of sour cream for a little added flavor along with fresh dill. Let this sit for a few hours at least before serving. I tasted it before I chilled it and a few hours after and it made a big difference. I think it gave the cucumbers and onions time to flavor the dip a bit more. I will definitely make this again at the next party. I served it with vegetable crackers, veggies and chips.
Absolutely awesome dip! I added 1 T sour cream and 1/4 tsp dill weed for added flavor and omitted the garlic salt replacing it with 1/2 tsp each garlic powder and salt. Excellent recipe! Thanks for sharing.
Nice summer dip-I used less onion, added dill, subbed Neufchatel for cream cheese and plain greek yogurt for the mayo.
