This is very simple and just as impressive. I've posted the full-fat version, but you can make this lower fat by using a low fat cream cheese and a low fat/no fat mayo. You can make this up to 48 hours in advance and it will taste great, just give it a stir before serving.

This dip tastes so fresh! I made it yesterday and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator to blend flavors. I made the recipe with non-fat mayo and cream cheese, and added a healthy sprinkle of cayenne pepper to give it a kick. One thing I did was grate the cucumber in the food processor, and squeeze the liquid out similar to squeezing frozen spinach that's been thawed. I also cut the recipe in half and it still made plenty. It's super-delicious on Ritz crackers! I can't wait until there is a pot luck so I can take this dip with me. Thanks for posting!
