Cucumber Dill Spread

by Erika Nicole Kendall

This is easily the quickest and easiest spread you’ll ever make in your life. It’s also extremely yummy.

No, really. There’s also a red pepper variation I’ll be posting later on… but for now…

1 large cucumber

8oz fage yogurt (it’s 0 fat, but not because of chemicals to my knowledge – just skim milk, so its okay)

8oz cream cheese

approx 1tbsp dill weed

You’ll take your cucumber and peel it using a vegetable peeler. To demonstrate the procedure…

From here, after you do your dicing, you’ll want to scoop your yogurt and your cream cheese into a bowl. Drop in your cucumber, and get to whipping!

From here, add in your dill weed by the shakeful – two shakes, stir and taste. I add a lot, mainly because I like the taste.

Be sure to whip it until you can’t whip it anymore… and you’ll be good! Ta-da! Use it on sandwiches in place of mayo, or just scoop it up like egg salad, on a couple pieces of bread… or a tortilla! A bagel? It’s up to you! Enjoy!

I teased about the peels but this was really good. I used the spread this evening in a sandwich with tomatoes! It was delicious!

This is very good however, the greek yogurt in this is very strong. Do you think it’s because I used Yoplait instead of Fage? I can’t find Fage in my stores. I love dill and cucumber together. I was shaking that dill like crazy and still the greek yogurt was overpowering everything!!

I just made my first loaf of bread (!!) and I think I’m going to hollow it out into a bowl and fill it with this spread! Mmm…

I made this spread last night and it was delicious!…I used it to top salmon cakes that I made. I did add a couple of dashes of hot sauce just to give it a kick.
