  • 3 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Cut cucumber, cream cheese and green onions into 1-inch pieces and place with parsley, sour cream and salt in a food processor.  Whirl for about 6 seconds.  Scrape down container's sides and whirl for 1 or 2 seconds more to achieve a fairly smooth texture.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.  Thin with cream to desired consistency.  Pour into chilled bowls and sprinkle with white pepper.
