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.

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

I love this dip! Instead of using sour cream I use a full brick of cream cheese. I make it all the time now! Read More

This is a very refreshing recipe. I did add a little fresh lemon juice and used green onion to give it some color. Read More

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! Read More

I used a whole large cucumber and quadrupled the garlic. Because I had a little to use I used chopped green onion as the onion in this recipe. This was good with the Garlic Pita Bread Bites the bites were already seasoned so I didn't need to worry about the dip being seasoned. They went really well together. There's only about a half cup of dip left out of the whole bowl......maybe. Next time I might add even more cucumber. Read More
