Cucumber Onion Dip

Review by Rachael:

Prep/Total Time: 15 minutes

1 package (8oz) cream cheese, softened (could use reduced or fat free)
½ cup finely chopped seeded, peeled cucumber
¼ cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons Mayonnaise (I used fat free Miracle Whip)
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Rye chips, crackers or baked chips

In a small mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, cucumber onion, mayonnaise, salt & pepper; beat until blended. Refrigerate until serving. Serve with Rye chips, crackers or baked chips. Yield: 1 ½ cups.

I was looking for a new dip to make & share at our crafting at the cabin day. This sounded so light & “summery” to me! Since I am really looking forward to warm weather this sounded like something I had to try. Very easy to make, just mix everything together. At first I didn’t think it had much flavor, but the longer it sat in the fridge the better the flavors got. I really liked this dip & will make it again. Had a great flavor & I love that I can make it ahead of time! I did make a double batch because a single batch just didn’t seem like enough for a crowd. I took both club crackers & Italian Herb Flatbread crackers. I liked the club crackers with it but really loved the Flatbread crackers with this dip. If you are looking for something very easy to take – I recommend this dip!
