Creamy Cucumber Dressing

I came across this recipe while in my desperate search for a raw salad dressing and have been in love ever since. It satisfies that creamy texture I was missing with ranch and yet is delicious enough to want to drink straight out of the container.

Creamy Cucumber Dressing
*yields 1 cup, 4 servings
(1) small cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped (about 1 cup)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1.5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed garlic (1/2 clove)
Dash cayenne (optional)
1.5 teaspoons minced fresh dill weed or 1/2 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon minced red or yellow onion

Place the cucumber, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, garlic, and cayenne in a blender and process until smooth and creamy. Add the dill weed and onion and blend briefly, just to mix. Stored in a cruet or glass jar in the refrigerator, will keep for 3 days.
