Refreshing end of summer cucumber dip

Some friends recently had us over for dinner where we were introduced to this wonderful appetizer, and I had to nearly force myself to be polite and refrain from eating half of the bowl all by myself. This creamy dip has a hint of cucumber in, making it a refreshing, flavorful addition to pita chips, bagel chips, or any herbed cracker. It's a refreshing, delicious, and easy appetizer perfect for these hot end of summer days.

This dip also makes a great spread for a veggie sandwich, and also as a light flavored salad dressing over fresh spinach and vegetables at lunch.

Yum! This reminds me a of a combination of two of my favorite appetizers: feta herb dip & tzatziki. It's still warm out- so, I'll have to make those again AND I definately want to try THIS now too. Thanks Nancy! Always great ideas!

Thanks for this, Nancy! Will make as an appetizer tonight as a prelude to spinach and mushroom quiche!
