- Peel cucumbers,then cut in half lengthwise, take a small spoon and scrape out the seeds. (discard the seeds) Slice the cucumbers and put them in a strainer. Sprinkle them with the kosher salt and let stand for 30 minutes. ( The salt helps to draw out the water from the cucumber.) Drain well and wipe dry with a paper towel In a food processor with a steel blade, add cucumber,garlic and lemon juice and process until well blended. Stir this mixture with the yogurt and pkg. of Dill Dip. Taste and make any seasoning adjustments at this time, Black Pepper or more salt.
