"If you like cucumbers and are a fan of potato chips, you'll love this dip! Using low fat versions of sour cream and cream cheese doesn't alter the flavor much, but sure saves on calories."

cream cheese, softened
cucumber, peeled and diced
salt and pepper to taste
I used an english cucumber for this recipe and to keep the dip from being watery, once finely chopped, I sprinkled a bit of salt on the cucs, placed in a colander and weighted it with a can of peas to help drain out the liquid. Left it in the fridge for a couple of hours and then proceeded with the dish. Refreshing and very good. Thanks!
This dip was pretty good. I think if I make it next time, I will onlly use 1/4 of a cucumber and seed it as well. The cucumber seemed to make the dip watery. I ended up adding more cream cheese to make it thick again. It was a good base though, a change from my usual ranch dip.
This dip was very good...be sure to salt the diced cucumber and let it sit a while to draw out the water first or you will have a runny dip.
THIS RECIPE IS GREAT FOR ANY EVENT. I HAVE FOUND THAT IF YOU USE PITA BREAD (GLAZED IN OLIVE OIL AND GARLIC SALT & BROWNED) AS YOUR "DIPPING AIDE" IT REALLY GOES WELL WITH THE DIP. I HAVE OFTEN USED A CAN OF SALMON THAT I FRY IN A PAN, TO ADD TO THE DIP! ITS DELICIOUS AND ALWAYS A GUEST FAVORITE!
I love this dip! Instead of using sour cream, I use a full brick of cream cheese. I make it all the time now!
This is a very refreshing recipe. I did add a little fresh lemon juice and used green onion to give it some color.
Loved this, as did my Mothers Day company....used reduced fat cream cheese and sour cream. I also roasted a head of garlic and the whole head instead of the raw garlic for this dip. The flavors were fantastic. I also used 1/2 of an English cucumber to reduce the amount of liquid and drained it as well. I did double the recipe and served with melba toast, sesame bread sticks and baked tostitos. Excellent!
everyone at our Homeschool co-op LOVED this only thing different I did was add about 1/4 cup of feta and 8 oz of cream cheese and a dollop more of sour cream. Enjoy it's good. Thank you.
