Great Traditional Kentucky Flavorite!, Member SissyLuvsKY

This was a staple in my Grandmother's Kentucky kitchen. I love it today just as much as when I was a little girl. I made this for my husband and he is in love with it too. I'm making a big batch for my Mom for Christmas... hope she is not reading this! Seriously, this is an easy to make dip and is sooo much better than any store bought dips. If you are new to making this dip just remember to squeeze the water out of the grated cucumbers for the best results in the texture of the Benedictine Dip.
