Reviews for Cucumber Onion Dip
"In Louisville, Kentucky we add a few drops of green food coloring and call it Benedictine. And then we eat it with chips and make it into sandwiches and it is good on a turkey sandwich. Love it! The food of childhood. Skip the pepper. That's just weird. With ruffles you could eat the whole thing all by yourself."
"Simply delicious - You have a fantastic recipe!"
"This is great as a bagel spread!. . . Since I love to experiment...I tried to turn this into a salad...I substituted greek yogurt for the cream cheese. Put it a half a lemon's of juice, a handful of chopped mint..and cubed up 2 cucumbers, 2 plum tomatoes, a very small purple onion, a handful of fresh chives...... it was delicious."
"would be better on sandwiches"
"This dip is perfect! It is so cool and creamy."
"Delicious! I made it exactly as written as served it with bagel chips and Triscuits."
"Really good dip! Just made it, stirred everything together then put it in my blender which made it a littlle smoother than the picture but still very good has a very light taste."
"Chopped tiny, mixed twice in my mixer and rested several hours before serving. I was hoping it would be a little yummier. Sorry. A little salty even though I used kosher salt. It may get better in a day. Maybe it needs some lemon juice? Guests asked about it though, so they liked it."
"good, but i also modified it and used lays ruffle chips and it was a hit. i used 2 packages of cream cheese and i added a 1/2 container of small curd cottage chesse, i didnt use onions becuase my children do not like onion, it was a hit and very creamy."
"This is awesome dip! Very refreshing. I always have to remind people it is dip they just dig into it like a salad."
