Cool and Creamy Cucumber Dip Is a Tasty Appetizer

Head to the store or farmers' market and grab some fresh cucumbers so you can make this delicious dip.

I like chips and salsa as much as the next person, but sometimes it is nice to have something different. This cucumber dip is cool, creamy and incredibly tasty. I like it with Wheat Thins, but Triscuits are good too. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Note: This recipe is based on one from the 1989 Great American Brand Names Cookbook

Ingredients:

3 medium cucumbers

1 1/2 packages of cream cheese (I use Philadelphia low fat)

1/2 cup sour cream (I use reduced fat Breakstone's)

1 tbsp. dried dill weed

1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice

1 envelope of Lipton vegetable soup mix

Directions:

Peel cucumbers, slice lengthwise. Scrape out seeds with spoon and then finely chop cucumber.

Using an electric mixer, combine cream cheese, dill weed, lemon juice and vegetable soup mix until smooth. Add the chopped cucumber, stirring until well mixed.

Serve with crackers. Keep refrigerated.
