  • 1/2 cup shredded unpeeled cucumber, strained
  • 3/4 cup Follow Your Heart dairy free sour cream (or other brand of thick dairy free sour cream)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  • Leave your cucumber unpeeled and shred it using a coarse microplane or a regular cheese grater. Measure out 1/2 cup of grated cucumber.
  • Squeeze out the excess water from the shredded cucumber by pushing it into a sieve or putting it in cheesecloth and squeezing out the excess liquid. You don't have to remove every bit of liquid, just make sure that you get most of it out.
  • Add the shredded cucumber and the sour cream to a medium sized bowl and stir until it is smooth and creamy.
  • Add the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper, and stir until combined. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for serving after it has chilled.
