Creamy Cucumber Dill Appetizer recipe made with cream cheese; serve it as a dip or as a spread.

Instructions:

1. Prepare & Chop Veggies

Begin by peeling the cucumber then cut it into 3-4 pieces. Then cut the roots off of the green onions and cut them in halves. Add both the cucumber pieces and the green onions to the food processor then cover and process until the vegetables for your appetizer are finely chopped.

2. Cream & Mix Appetizer

Next, add the softened cream cheese and Worcestershire sauce to the food processor. Then process the four ingredients together until the dip for your Creamy Cucumber Dill Appetizer is smooth.

Use a spatula to transfer the creamy mixture from the food processor to a bowl then use the spatula to mix in the Dill Weed. If desired, add salt and mix until both seasons are well combined.

3. Chill & Serve

Cover the bowl then chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour. The longer the flavors have time to blend the better. Refrigerating this Creamy Cucumber Dill Dip overnight is best but I can rarely wait that long.

Serve this simple appetizer cold with pita bread, melba toast, crackers or raw veggies. If desired, garnish with additional diced green onion.

How Long Will it Last in the Fridge?

This is basically cream cheese and spices. So it will last about a week or so in the refrigerator. After about a week the texture will start to change.

Cream Cheese Substitute

Here are some ideas of things you can use instead of cream cheese:

  • Greek Yogurt
  • Soft Tofu
  • Sour Cream

What to Serve With Cucumber Dill Dip

This is a really versatile dip. It’s perfect for summertime parties. You can serve it with any of your favorite BBQ foods.

Try using these ideas to eat with your dip:

  • Fresh veggies – raw cucumber, raw peppers
  • Pita chips
  • Crackers
  • Cheese crisps
  • Use it in place of mayonnaise on your favorite sandwich

Is Fresh Dill Better than Dried Dill?

Yes, I always prefer to use fresh herbs instead of dried if I have access to them. The fresh herbs will have a much more powerful flavor than the dried ones.
