This stuff is simply great! Made this for thanksgiving and everyone raved. I noticed quite a few people commenting about the dip being too light in color, so I cooked my onions to the point of WAY caramelized (took about an hour, cooking them slowly); they were very dark and sort of sticky, but not burned. I also added about a half a teaspoon of worscestershire to mine. The dip turned out a nice, golden color from this. Am making this again for Christmas and probably for many holidays to come.

I have made this many times now with a few adaptions. I don't like sour cream and am trying to eat healthier. I use greek yogurt in place of the mayo and sour cream. Hubby cannot tell the difference.

The key to this dip is patience. If you taste it right after making it, you'll think it's just ok. Wait a day and it's a little better. Even better the next day...and so on. The only negative about this dip is that it doesn't really look like onion dip as I know it. It's sooooo white - a couple of people thought it was cottage cheese! Someone suggested adding a little powdered beef bouillion to it to "brown" it up a little. In the end, this tastes great! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.

This is a yummy dip. I made this twice. Once as directed, then again with dried minced onions and dried chives which I reconstitued before adding (just because I was in a hurry and didn't want to take the time to caramelize the onions) Both ways were good. If I were to make this again with the chives, I would probably add less mayo. Thanks evewitch!

This dip is the bomb. Made it exactly like the recipe. It looks like the dip you buy at the store, so I don't know why people think the dip is too light in color? It tastes awesome, was quick to make, and I have my new easy recipe for upcoming holiday invitations this year!

This was amazing. Far superior to any pre-made or powdered dip out there. Absolutely make it the day before so it has time to really set the flavor. So good.

I didn't think this was anything special. I made a half recipe and thought there was not enough onion flavor to it. Even after being refrigerated for 2 days, the onion flavor just did not come through.

I made this the night before and let it sit for the flavors to blend. It was pretty tasty. Next time, I will probably experiment with adding some more herbs and seasonings. Thanks for sharing!

This was OK, I was hoping it to be better. It had too to much of a mayonaise taste, which I like, but not w/ the dip. May try this again with less mayo or none at all.
