Garlic Cucumber Cheese Dip

Recipe:
2 8 oz boxes of cream cheese
2- 5 cloves of garlic
1 cucumber
1 bag cheddar cheese 
salt and pepper

This dip was at a craft fair that I went to when I was around 11.  It has been a favorite ever since. Seriously this dip is easy and delicious and cheap!  Gut the cucumber so it doesn't water down the dip.  Mince the garlic and then mix in 3/4 of a bag of cheese.  Shape into a ball and then pat the rest of the cheese on the mixture to make it pretty pretty.

I think it tastes great with Ritz crackers, but it's absolutely amazing as a cream cheese schmear for bagels!  This is a perfect party appetizer with some wow factor !  It is definitely an odd combination of flavors, but the cucumber makes it fresh and the garlic makes it full of flavor.  Don't be scared seriously everyone at work devoured it.  Be considerate of others tolerance for garlic.  I actually had to go back to the store because it was soooooo garlicky it practically burnt my tongue haha.  If that happens to you too just add more cream cheese, but add a little garlic at a time because otherwise you will be heading back to the super market :P  Yum !! Hope that you try it and enjoy!
