Cucumber Herb Dip

1 (8 oz.) package of softened cream cheese
2 cups finely shredded cucumber (drained)
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients until blended well; cover. Refrigerate for 6-8 hours or until chilled and flavors are blended. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: You might want to use a blender for this one. This will ensure everything is combined well and the flavors will really have a chance to come together. Garnish with some fresh dill and serve with tortilla chips.
