My sisiter-in-law Carol is the best cook I have ever met. This is one of the dips she serves at her yearly derby party. She serves it with crackers but you can also make finger sandwiches or use as a stuffing for celery.

I whipped this up to make a sandwich filling for a pita for lunch today. I didn't bother with the food coloring since I didn't care if it was "pretty" or not. I halved this recipe, finely chopped the cucumbers and used about 1/3 of a small grated onion. I'll probably use significantly less onion next time because the onion was very overwhelming for me. Nonetheless, this was a very tasty, easy sandwich filling and I can easily see myself using this as a dip for crackers. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Finely grind cucumber pulp. Place in a piece of cheesecloth and press out juice until pulp is fairly dry. In a mixing bowl mash cheese with a fork. Work cucumber pulp into cheese, add onion, salt and Tabasco sauce. Add enough mayonaise to make a smooth, easy to spread filling. Add just enough food coloring to make cheese a pale green.
