images (6)

1 medium cucumber, peeled and seeded
8 ounces cream cheese
1 small onion, finely ground
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dash Tabasco sauce
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 drops food coloring


Finely grind cucumber pulp. Place in a piece of cheesecloth and press out juice until pulp is fairly dry. In a mixing bowl mash cheese with a fork. Work cucumber pulp into cheese, add onion, salt and Tabasco sauce. Add enough mayonnaise to make a smooth, easy to spread filling. Add just enough food coloring to make cheese a pale green.
