Cucumber Cream Cheese Dip

I will be the first to admit that I am terrible at meal planning. Our family typically eats the same few meals over and over. But what I lack in creativity for weeknight meals, I usually make up for when we have guests.  As I have mentioned several times before we host our small group in our home once every six weeks or so, and I am always looking for something new to try out on them. This past week, I noticed cucumber recipes everywhere as the peak season is winding down and apparently it was a good year for them. In keeping with the dips and spreads theme of our last gathering (Check out the Facebook live for the whole spread), I modified a Cucumber Cream Cheese Dip. It is super simple and the addition of the Worcestershire sauce gives it a little added kick!

While we served this Cucumber Cream Cheese Dip with crackers and toasted bread, it would also be great on a bagel or even as a spread for cucumber tea sandwiches.

What is your favorite way to serve cucumbers? I would love to try your favorite.

By the way,  you can always share your creations with me on Instagram and I would love to for you to join our Facebook Group to share with our friends who also love making great food for good friends. Until then…

Stay humble, work hard, be kind.
