      I made this to take to my sister's house on Easter, good thing I made a double batch, because it was almost all gone by the time we left. Another sister made sure I gave her the recipe before I left. It was a huge hit!! I served the dip with 3 different kinds of crackers. My mom insisted that I bring this to my Dad's birthday party next week. I wouldn't change a thing!! Thank you so much Kimke for the wonderful dip!!!!

      10 stars or more for this one! The flavor is outstanding!! I doubled the recipe, but did it in 2 stages. I made half the onions as directed and the other half in a fine dice plus added 3 cloves of fresh, crushed, minced garlic. UNREAL! I will NEVER buy chemical laden, store-bought chip dip again! Thanks for a stunning keeper!

      Delicious! I used a food processor on the dip, because I didn't like the stringy-ness of the onions, and I was very very pleased with the results. Thinking of adding some lemon next time, though this is so good it doesn't really need the boost.
