  Dried chives 1 Teaspoon
  Seasoned pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Hot pepper sauce 1⁄4 Teaspoon

Peel cucumbers.
Slice in half lengthwise, remove seeds with a spoon.
Grate cucumbers by hand or with a food processor.
Squeeze cucumbers by the handful, then place on several layers of paper towels.
Cover with several more layers of paper towels, press hard to squeeze out all moisture.
In bowl of a food processor fitted with steel blade or in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer, combine cream cheese, green onions, parsley, mayonnaise, garlic salt, chives, seasoned pepper and hot pepper sauce, process or mix until well mixed.
Carefully stir in cucumbers.
Add more mayonnaise, if needed, to get a spreading consistency.
