     Pops has been harvesting cucumbers faster than I can use them this year.  Although I throw them in every lettuce salad I make and have shared them with friends and family, we have more than we can eat.

 I made a batch of refrigerator pickles and still had more to use.  Cucumber salad came to mind.

We really enjoy a creamy cucumber salad and love cucumber dill dip so I combined the two.  This is a keeper.

       2016 -MiMi shared this recipe with us last summer, but it needed a new picture.  The only picture we had of the finished dish was on the buffet table outside and really close up.

    I made these using her recipe.  The picture still doesn’t do it justice, but you’ll just have to make it to find out how good they are!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend!

 2017 update: Ha!!  I didn’t realize I’ve already tried twice to get decent pictures of this.  It turns out it just isn’t that photogenic, I guess!    

It is hard to make them look interesting in a photograph, but they really are quite refreshing and delicious.  Don’t let the boring pictures scare you off!

Thank you so much! This is always a favorite when we make it and is a perfect way to use up all the dill and cucumbers that are going crazy in the garden right now!
