How to Make Cucumber Dip

Follow these steps to make this simple, creamy cucumber dip.

Step 1 | SET THE CREAM CHEESE OUT TO SOFTEN

First, set the cream cheese out to soften so it’s nice and creamy and mixes well.

Step 2 | PEEL AND CHOP CUCUMBERS

Next, peel and chop both cucumbers into large chunks. Set aside.

Step 3 | ADD CREAM CHEESE TO MIXING BOWL

Next, add the cream cheese to a medium-sized mixing bowl. (Make sure it is softened or your dip will end up chunky. You can even pop it in the microwave, on defrost, if needed.) Mix until creamy. Tip: using a stand or electric hand mixer makes this so easy.

Step 7 | REFRIGERATE UNTIL READY TO SERVE

Store in the fridge in an airtight container until you are ready to serve. Chill in the fridge for several hours if possible. This will allow the flavors to blend together.

Step 8 | PAIR WITH TORTILLA CHIPS OR OTHER DIPPERS

When you are ready to serve, add the dip to a fun serving bowl and pair it with tortilla chips or other dippers (see list of ideas below).

More About This Recipe

  • Don’t let its simplicity fool you—this dip is packed with flavor. It’s our go-to recipe for a last-minute summer barbecue or potluck because you only need 4 ingredients and 15 minutes. It goes together quickly.
  • We love to pair it with a variety of dippers like tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers, or more fresh vegetables. Our favorite is tortilla chips!
  • It’s a tasty way to use up cucumbers (especially garden cucumbers).

TIP: MAKE THIS DIP THE SAME DAY YOU PLAN TO SERVE IT

The cucumbers will release water overnight and the dip becomes a little runny the next day. Still tastes great, but the consistency is a little different. However, chilling in the fridge several hours before serving is recommended and will not create a watery consistency.

Or, if you do want to make it the day before, scoop or cut away the seeds, which are the most liquidy part of the cucumber, before chopping.

How to Store This Dip

If you’re planning on making this cucumber dip, make sure to keep it chilled in the fridge. Keeping a tight seal will ensure your dip stays fresh for up 2 weeks. Otherwise, bacteria can start forming if left out at room temperature for more than a few hours.
