This Cucumber Onion Dip is addicting — once you start eating it, it’s hard to stop. Cool, crisp, chopped cucumbers give a little crunch along with the finely chopped red onion. The ranch mix flavoring is that seasoning we all know and love, and the sour cream is smooth and creamy.
When you’re planning a party, there’s nothing better than having recipes that you can make ahead of time.
Enters Cucumber Onion Dip. Mix together and stir the day before the party to free up your time.
Just don’t eat it before the party even starts.
Making Cucumber Onion Dip
This really is an easy one. Throw everything into a bowl and stir.
Leave it for at least an hour, then it’s ready.
Or, you can make it the day before the party starts.
The only thing I would recommend here is that when you chop up the cucumber and red onion, that you make the pieces really small.
This makes it much easier to scoop up with whatever you serve the dip with.
For example, celery sticks are somewhat narrow. If there are large chunks, they’re likely to fall off before you get it into your mouth.
Smaller, finely chopped pieces make scooping easier.
What to serve with this dip…
Chips are my go-to, but this dip is flexible and loves everybody.
Wavy, ridged, or original potato chips — corn chips — Sun Chips — pretzels. All good.
Most any type of cracker, seriously.
Then there’s vegetables: celery, carrot sticks, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, snow peas, etc.
Thin, toasted pieces of Bruschetta toast are perfect for scooping up a healthy dollop of this delicious dip.

A quick mention of this wonderful blank recipe book that I helped to create with a very dear friend. Write in one or more recipes before giving it to that special person, then they can fill the remaining pages with their favorites, and/or have other special people write out recipes for them. It’s personal, and yes, it takes time and effort — something we’ve gotten away from with all this technology. Check it out HERE where you can order it in a hard or soft cover. Once there, click on READ SAMPLE to see the pages within. Also, I make no money from any sales, I just love the idea of this book. Missing my mom as I do, seeing her handwriting always makes me feel closer to her. Give that gift to someone else by writing out a favorite recipe.
