This is a change for a vegetable dip - not the usual onion. Easy to make in a food processor. Must make one day ahead.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and grate cucumber.
  2. Mix cucumber with vinegar and salt and refrigerate overnight.
  3. When ready to serve, thoroughly blend cream cheese, mayonnaise, and garlic.
  4. Press all liquid from the marinated cucumber; discard the liquid and stir the cucumber into the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Serve with fresh vegetables or a thin corn chip.

This recipe was perfect and I found it at just the right time! A neighbor shared her bounty of cukes & some had gotten quite large. It just got better as it sat too as the flavor really goes through it more & more! We especially liked it with corn chips. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing! (-:

My guests raved about this dip! I made it with light cream cheese and weight watcher's mayonnaise, also added some parsley and fresh mint. Gorgeous! Thank you!

This was excellent, and I didn't even marinate the cucumber overnight (just a few hours) so it probably tastes even better if you actually do what the recipe says!!! The first time I made it, I halved the recipe and forgot to halve the mayo - still tasted great.
