Place grated cucumber & onion in the center of a clean kitchen towel and twist to wring out as much water as possible. Discard liquid.
Combine drained cucumber, onion, cream cheese, sour cream & Tabasco in a large bowl. Add salt to taste. Tip: Use a stand or hand mixer to combine quickly.
Scoop into a bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight to allow flavors to marry.
Serve with pumpernickel toasts, veggies, or crackers.
