A grown-up take on the classic convenience store onion dip. Always a winner at my parties.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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]
