Creamy cucumber dip is such a simple recipe full of flavor. This creamy dip pairs great with tortilla chips, pita chips or more veggies. The perfect go-to recipe for last minute get-togethers and barbecues. 


I’m really excited to share this recipe.  It’s one of my favorites all the way back to my college days.  Looks can be deceiving a little bit as it looks really basic, but it is packed with flavor.  It is so simple yet so delicious.

My family goes crazy over cucumbers.  Cucumbers with salt is a snack favorite at our house.  Naturally they like this cucumber dip as well.  But who I am kidding, as long as my kids can dip — they’ll pretty much eat anything!

It’s my go to recipe when our family is invited to a BBQ last minute.  You can pair it with tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers, or more veggies.  Our favorite is tortilla chips!

Recipe Instructions & Tips

This dip takes 15-20 minutes to prepare and feeds about 10-12 people.

First, I like to set the cream cheese out to soften and then get the chopping out of the way.  Chop both cucumbers in to large chunks and set aside.

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.  I use my hand mixer to blend.  One day I will have the teal Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, but I haven’t splurged yet!

Add the sour cream and blend until very creamy.


Next, add the package of ranch dip seasoning.  Mix well.


Add the chopped cucumbers.  Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.


To serve, add the dip to a fun serving bowl and pair with tortilla chips.

Chip & Dip Bowl

Other options — pita chips, crackers or veggies.  🙂

Tip:  If you are bringing this as a snack/appetizer to a BBQ or potluck, I recommend making it the same day.  The cucumbers will release water overnight and the dip becomes a little runny the next day.  Still tastes great, but looks a little watered down.
