Tip for the best thick and creamy cucumber dill dip:
Since cucumbers are largely made up of water the key to keeping this dip thick and creamy (and not watery), is to squeeze as much water as possible from the cucumber once it’s shredded.
Directions for how to do this can be found in the photo tutorial instructions below.
You’ll be amazed how much water is released from the cucumber that would have made your dip thin and runny!
Don’t waste that cucumber water!!
And, instead of washing all the delicious cucumber water down the drain, why not make a glass of Cucumber Lime Fitness Water by adding the cucumber juice to a glass of ice water, along with a sprig of fresh dill?
Ahhh. Talk about refreshing!
Other uses for cucumber dill dip:
- baked potato topping
- sandwich spread
- tartar sauce for seafood
- sauce for making potato salad
The easy instructions:
- Slice a large cucumber in half and scoop out the seeds (or use and English cucumber and skip this step).
- Shred the cucumber on a box grater.
- Place the shredded cucumber on a clean dish towel or several layers of paper towel.
- Gently but firmly squeeze as much water from the cucumber as possible (reserving the juice to make spa water), and place the drained cucumber into a large bowl along with some grated red onion.
- Chop dill pickles into ¼” pieces.
- Add the pickles into the bowl along with chopped fresh dill weed, and grated horseradish.
- Add Dijon mustard, black pepper, mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, and garlic powder to the bowl.
- Stir to mix well and chill at least 2 hours to marry all the flavors.
- Serve with assorted crackers, chips, vegetables, or use as a sandwich spread.
