A few years ago, my friend, Jessie, introduced us to this wonderful cucumber dip. Our family was at her house one evening, and her husband said, “You’ve got to try some of Jessie’s cucumber dip.” He casually pulled it out of the fridge, and we, after one bite, were hooked. We’ve made this regularly at our house ever since.
Now, Jessie’s cucumber dip is the real deal because she and her husband grow the cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes in their own garden. I, on the other hand, pick up my ingredients at the local grocery store, but this dip is still so delicious. Whether using garden grown or store-bought ingredients, this dip is cool, refreshing, and bursting with late summer garden flavor.
We usually eat this as a dip with either tortilla chips or pita chips. This summer, I’ve been eating it just as a side salad with some grilled chicken or steak, and it’s equally lovely. So, try it either way! You’ll love it!
