Garden Recipe: Cucumber & Dill Spread

Whatcha' gonna do with all your cukes?

I have a suggestion:

How about Cucumber & Dill Spread? It's delicious, so long as you like cucumbers.

And it's easy.

And the kids love it {contrary to their "this is going to make me barf" facial expressions}.

I had it at 10:30 this morning and it was mighty fine. I like to serve it open-faced on pumpernickel and top it with fresh Romas and then sprinkle a little dill & Jane's over top. Have any of you looked for Jane's Krazy Salt? I'm wondering if it's a "southern" thing. It's made in South Carolina and I had no problem finding it in Tallahassee but haven't checked here.

It only sat on that plate for about 30 seconds before I devoured it.

I just bought some Jane's crazy salt here in NYC after your recommended it. That dip looks great.

Can't wait to give it a try.

That looks delicious!
You can find Jane's Crazy salt at Winn Dixie. We love it and use it on everything! There is also a Jane's Crazy Pepper that is good.

Elizabeth said...

This looks delicious! I'm definitely going to get some cucumbers at the farmer's market this weekend and make this.

I found the crazy salt at the Piggly Wiggly in Geneva, Al.

Yes, we have Jane's Crazy Salt here in SE PA...I use it like this...

Take some cocktail rye, spread some cream cheese, sprinkle with the JKS and then top with a slice of cucumber...

Your recipe looks very good too!

Sounds yummy! We have Jane's Crazy Salt in South Florida- I use it all the time!!!

Angel said...

Looks soooo yummy! We have JKS up here in MN. I picked some up for Paula Deen's cole slaw recipe.
I'll have to try this recipe too!

lisa c said...

i recognize this recipe from my days as a cook at the herb garden. oh the many, many days i road my bike home feeling sick from eating too much of this stuff!

its so fun to "keep up with you" via your blog! ya'll are precious! oh, and if i'm ever near by (i do drive through your neck of the woods regularly) i may have to find out how to get to that fabric store. i was drooling!

Kim said...

Awesome! Thanks for the recipe. I hope I have enough cucumbers that I don't know what to do with them - then I can make lots of this. =) It's our first year gardening, so I don't wanna get too high of hopes.

JennyMarie said...

I love that you are always posting your recipes! I just posted one on my blog, come check it out: jennymariesays.blogspot.com
We shop for groceries at HEB in Texas, haven't seen Jane's.

Melanie said...

Is is just me, or is anyone else having troubles printing the recipe? I can see it, but when I print, it is very tiny.

erika said...

I love that someone is shopping at the Piggly Wiggly in Geneva! Beba calls it the "Hoggly Woggly" which cracks me up! I've not looked for Jane's - must do! I hope you saved some of that for me (bringing with you!?)! I am making Pimento Cheese. Chance is gonna starve this weekend, I don't think he'd touch either with a 10' pole.
Love you,
Mommasis

Also, OMG, I forgot Lisa Webster worked at the Herb Garden too!
Funny!!!!

The Dyer Family said...

i grew up on janes and i use it in everything (all soup needs it). i buy it sometimes even if i don't need it. i think it's pretty common. this dates me a little, but they referenced janes one time on an episode of will and grace!!
i will certainly be trying your recipe. i just made your frosted banana bars last week, and i've gotten a lot of folks hooked!!

Erin said...

Yummm, I love a good cuck!! I'll have to look for some crazy jane's!!
Have fun with Brookie this weekend!! Happy early birthday! Love you!!

Shoot! I didn't plant cucumbers in my garden because I didn't think we would eat enough to bother. But this looks so yummy that I really wish I had! Darn it!

Tina O. said...

I have some Jane's in my cabinet, but I don't know if I've ever used it. It must have seemed intriguing at the store. I'll have to pull it out. Oh, I am in Cleveland, Ohio.

twin2trip said...

Oh my, that looks mighty tasty. I wish I could Fly Through Your Window right now....although I think you already devoured them.

thanks for the recipe. I'm going to love my cukes tonight.

happy birthday!!! your sister let the cat out of the bag!!!

Kelli said...

What lens on your camera did you use for those pictures? I am just getting started on playing with a camera and I can't get the "all purpose" lens to fuzz out the background, but the macro lens does?!?!? All that to say, what lens did you use? Thanks so much!

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

Have a VERY Happy Birthday!!! :)

Melissa said...

First off, happy birthday wishes to you and Erika! I wound up finding some of the Jane's salt at Winn Dixie. I do most of my grocery shopping at Wal-mart, but did get my husband to stop by Winn Dixie one afternoon, and they had it.

The Birds Nest said...

Jane's Krazy Salt has been a fav of mine since I was a child. I have always loved it on hamburgers. I really like to take a burger, cut up potatoes, carrots, celery, mushrooms, drench it all with Jane's Krazy Salt, wrap all of it in foil, bake it for around an hour. Yummy!!!!

sillygirltree said...

we've got Jane's here in the middle of nowhere Japan...who knew?!?

amberrose said...

Yes, I buy Jane's Crazy Salt here in Dayton, Ohio at the Kroger's.

Jan McGregor said...

I did find Crazy Salt at WD in Dothan 1 time on the bottom shelf! I bought mine in Tallahasse also. It is the best when making chicken salad! Frosted bars were awesome too! Happy Birthday!

Pammie Lou said...

After giving away all the "pretty cucs" I used the slightly "deformed cucs" and made your dreamy spread! Delicious!

Leslie said...

KRAZY SALT! WITH A K so you know it's extra crazy!! I haven't seen that stuff since I was drowning everything I could in it in Monteagle, Tennessee. I haven't seen or thought of this magic in YEARS!
