Cucumber-Dill Shrimp Dip

There's nothing that motivates me to eat raw veggies more than a delicious dip! I had some shrimp leftover after making the stir fry and risotto, so I was excited to re-discover this recipe in my collection.

I love shrimp and dill, and well, cucumbers, too, so I knew this would be a great combination. And it didn't disappoint. I'm eating it even as I type this post.

Combine the sour cream, salt and dill in a small mixing bowl.

Add the cream cheese,

then beat until smooth.

Set aside 3 whole shrimp for a garnish, then chop up the remaining shrimp.

Chop the cucumbers and set aside 2 Tbsp. for the garnish.

Add the remaining cucumbers to the creamed mixture.

Then add the shrimp.

Stir well to mix all ingredients, and then refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving. Serve with vegetables or crackers.
