“My late mother-in-law's recipe is a must at every gathering, even in the dead of winter for the Steeler/Penguin games. We have friends that don't like cucumbers, but they love this dip! You do need to use regular cream cheese and hand dice the vegetables. I have tried this with low-fat & no-fat cream cheese and a food procesor, but all of those make it soupy.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 large cucumber
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese (regular, anything less makes soup)
  • 12 cup diced onion
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice (to taste)
  • 1 -2 teaspoon salt (sea salt gives a better flavor) or 1 teaspoon sea salt (sea salt gives a better flavor)


  1. Set out cream cheese in a mixing bowl to soften.
  2. Dice cucumber and spread out on a paper towel (I usually put a paper plate underneath).
  3. Set aside and dice the onion.
  4. You can add all ingredients to the cream cheese and blend thoroughly. Or blend the cream cheese, lemon juice, salt & onion with a hand mixer and then fold in the cucumber.
  5. Chill in the refrigerator and serve with chips.
