2 cucumbers, peeled
1 medium onion
1 pound cream cheese
2 to 3 drops green food coloring
Grate cucumber and onion (may use food processor) and drain well in a strainer, pressing down with spoon to remove all liquid. Discard liquid. Add drained cucumbers and onion to cream cheese and mix well in food processor. Color with 2 to 3 drops green food coloring.
Use as a sandwich spread or as a dip. Benedictine may also be used to stuff cherry tomatoes for an hors d'oeuvre tray.
