How to Make a Low Carb Cucumber and Cilantro Dip
Add cream cheese, sour cream and fresh cilantro to a food processor. Blend until smooth.
Cut some English cucumber into quarters lengthways, then remove the seeds. This will stop the dip separating and becoming too watery.
Roughly chop the cucumber, and add it to the food processor. Give it a few quick pulses to further chop and incorporate the cucumber. Add salt and pepper as necessary.
This dip works well with homemade tortilla chips, jicama sticks, or even a chicken skewer! It also makes a lovely filling for a low carb wrap – perhaps with some cooked chicken or ham and lettuce, too.Low Carb Cucumber and Cilantro Dip - creamy and refreshing! #lowcarb Click To Tweet
