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!

  • 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.

  • cups shredded cucumbers seeds removed (if needed) and squeezed dry.

  • ¼ cup chopped dill pickles
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish

Recipe Notes

If using English cucumbers, there is no need to remove the seeds.

Squeezing the liquid from the shredded cucumbers is key to achieving a thick dip that isn’t watery.

Add the liquid from the cucumbers to a glass of water and drink up. It’s healthy and refreshing!
