Mmm, what a yummy dip! I really liked the onion flavour in this. It wasnt too tangy because the sauteeing mellowed it. I would have liked some additional spicing, though. Maybe some garlic, pepper and some kind of herb. The texture was lovely (even though I swapped the mayo for yoghurt), great for scooping up with crackers.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Kate!

This is good. Actually I only tried a really tiny bit because of allergy to the cream cheese. Others liked it though. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil, cooking onion for the brown onion, sea salt, A Danish type of cream cheese, Balkan (thick) yogurt instead of sour cream to be corn free, and a regular ie, not light Hellman's olive oil mayonnaise to be soy free, plus the rest.

Every Friday afternoon I take a homemade dip to work. Today Robert (a colleague and a very fussy eater) asked if it was okay for him to take home all the leftovers. I said yes. He also said 'Can I nominate this dip as the best dip ever?' I said yes again. Amazing dip and very moor-ish. Everyone loved it. Served with celery bits and bread slices.
