A grown-up take on the classic convenience store onion dip. Always a winner at my parties.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 large yellow onions, finely chopped
- 3⁄4 cup sour cream (low fat is fine)
- 3⁄4 cup plain Greek yogurt (low fat is fine)
- 3 tablespoons dehydrated onion powder, granules (salt-free)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- In a large thick-bottomed skillet over medium heat saute the chopped onions in the olive oil until the onions are deeply golden, brown, and caramelized, roughly 40-50 minutes. Set aside and let cool.
- In the meantime, whisk together the sour cream, yogurt, onion powder, and salt. the important thing is to add whatever onion powder you use to taste. Add a bit at a time until you think it's really good!
- Set aside until the caramelized onions have cooled to room temperature. stir in 2/3 of the caramelized onions, scoop into a serving bowl, and top with the remaining caramelized onions, scoop into a serving bowl, and top with the remaining onions.
- I think this dip is best at room temperature.
This dip is so good! Its creamy, oniony and just plain yummy. Loved it! :) I used red onions as I had them on hand and added some garlic powder. Other than that I stuck to your recipe and it was perfect.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, lornaloo!

Had a couple of friends over to help with some work on the outside of our mobile home & knew they enjoyed fries & a dip, so I used them as testers for this recipe! Passed with flying colors, too ~ We all thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
