The month of June is known for many names associated with it, but one of the best is that June is called Cucumber Month. So to support Cucumber Month, I have put together a cucumber spread for vegetables, crackers and small crispy bread. It is quick and easy to put together.

Crispy Cucumber Spread

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon grated onions
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup peeled and finely chopped cucmber

Combine the first 3 ingredients.
Mix until well blended and smooth.
Stir in cucumbers.
Chill for several hours.
Serves 6-8

Serve with:
Fresh steamed veggies
Fish, Pork
Pumpkin Soup--use as a dollop in the center of bowl. Raw veggies as an appetizer.

To make buttermilk:
Add 1 Tablespoon of lemeon juice to milk.
Let stand 5-10 minutes.
