Make the ultimate green-friendly backyard BBQ meal with great food you can pick up from your farmers' market.
1 large seedless cucumber (about 20 ounces), peeled
1 teaspoon salt
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
Combine the cucumber and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until the cucumber is puréed; strain the mixture through a fine strainer and set aside.

Garnish with fresh thyme, if desired, and serve with fresh raw vegetables.
