An almost guilt-free treat for upcoming games...

I made this dip last week when Miami played in the Bowl.  It is almost completely guilt free and the cayenne added a nice bite (but not overly hot).  If you put it in a large bread bowl like I did, you will probably want to double the recipe (I wish I had).

This dip was a riff on the recipe I use for the Cucumber Dill Sauce I like to serve with salmon.  In the past when I have been using a recipe from my blog, or a bookmark, I lug my big (17"!) laptop to the kitchen and plop it on the counter, where it takes up way too much room.  My sweet husband gave me an iPad for Christmas and this was the perfect opportunity to test it out in the kitchen.

Cucumber Dip with Dill

1 cup fat free sour cream
1 cup light nayo
1 cucumber, seeded and finely diced, keeping the peel if at all possible
3 cloves garlic, minced (1 tbs.)
1 tbs. dried dill
1/2 tsp. cayenne
coarse salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Mix the ingredients well and refrigerate several hours or overnight to meld the flavors.  Serve in a pretty bowl or a hollowed out bread round, using the cut up insides as dippers.

Ben couldn't wait...
