My Favorite Cucumber Dip/Spread
I love this stuff. I usually make 1/2 a recipe though, since there's only 2 of us. If you thoroughly drain and squeeze the liquid out of the cucumber, you get a thick spread. If you leave some liquid in it, you get a dip. I love it with the Sea Salt/Black Pepper chips for a dip and I use it as the spread in ham roll-ups.

1Allow the cr cheese and butter to soften to room temp.
2Grate and drain the cucumber (or not drained if you want it as a dip).
