If you want a no carb dip, I think it would have to be some kind of meat and/or oil, made into a spread or something. But for a lc dip you can use full fat cottage cheese whizzed up with a hand blender or food processor and add seasonings, maybe some sauteed onions or chopped peppers, just watch the quantities. You could also use greek yogurt as a base, but it's a little higher in carbs than cottage cheese. The advantage to making the dip from cottage cheese is that you're eating protein which will be more filling and you might eat less of it than eating something like ranch dressing, etc...

Make sure you check the carb counts of all ingredients, so you don't go over what you intend to eat.

Daisy sour cream has only one carb/2 TBS ...
Why not use that and mix it with spices like onion, garlic, Mrs. Dash, etc?

Just about any lowcarb recipe is listed here on LindaSue's website. She has comments on each recipe, rates them by stars, and even has them marked as Induction, etc. Be sure and read her story too! Click here: http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/index.html

My sister makes a dip she calls BLT dip. It's 1 c. mayo, 1 c. sour cream, 1 lb bacon fried and crumbled and a tomato diced - all mixed together. The tomato adds some carbs, but I can imagine this would be to die for with cucumber slices.

I buy Marie's Blue Cheese Dressing and Cardini's Caesar dressing (one carb/ 2 TBS).
Read your labels and look for the dressings that are one carb or less per serving.
When eating out, always check the labels too if possible. If not, I usually ask for Blue Cheese, Ranch, or Caesar dressings ... they tend to be lower than some. The lowfat ones usually have more sugar in them.

French Onion Dip is usually low in carbs. Just check your labels.

"Z_ero carb" is the wrong term. About the things that are z_ero carb are muscle meat and oils.

I like hummus! I don't know how that would taste with cucumbers, but it's good with a lot of veggies!

How about a tin of BabaGanoush (roasted eggplant dip). I love that stuff, don't have a tin here to tell you the carb counts, but I know it's really really low. It's great with veggies and you can add some crushed chilli or other seasonings to it to spice it up a bit. I get it from mediterranian deli type stores or sometimes a good fruit market will have it.
