Creamy Cucumber Spread

I have made this several times now, & I love it. It's very easy to make. I added more cucumber, more onion, & I also added dill to it, instead of adding the green food coloring. My patients & my teammates love this!

Good. Added garlic powder. I can figure this out, but did anyone notice cucumber, as an ingredient, is missing? Why the food coloring? Dietitian comment: I see 1 medium cucumber in the ingredient list. The food coloring is optional--it's for appealing color but not necessary for anything else in the recipe.

This is incredibly delicious. I tweaked it just a little. In addition to finely minced white onion and de-seeded, finely minced cucumber, I added a couple of tablespoons of finely minced pickled jalapeno pepper and carrot combination. Of course, I omitted the salt. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of Mrs. Dash table blend, sprinkle with paprika, refrigerate, and voila! This is a veggie spread that could grace any table.

Easy to make and super delicious. I did not add the salt and it is still fantastic for a cool snack or sandwich.

This is really good. Cream and works good in a lot of different ways. I put the minced cucumber in a fine mesh strain and let some of the juice drip out and it is even creamier.

This sounds really good. I make something very similar to this. I slice the cucumber after peeling long way, and scrape out those pesky seeds. Then I slice it as thin as humanly possible. Then I squeeze the slices in a clean dish towel getting as much liquid out of them as I can. I omit the salt, in my humble opinion, it isn't needed, and add 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder instead. I also omit the mayo and use sour cream in it's place. Gives the whole dish a bit of zip. I've never used food coloring, but will the next time I make this. A pale green color sounds attractive!
