On the list of delicious snacks, potato chips and French onion dip are at or definitely near the top. If you’re like most people, when you have a hankerin’ for chips and dip, you head to the store to get both. However, I found a recipe for French onion dip that is so delicious and easy that you won’t buy a tub of dip at the store ever again. All you need is a little time.
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 Vidalia onions, sliced into 1/4-inch rings (about 4 cups)
- 2 large shallots, sliced into 1/8-inch rings (about 1/2 cup)
- 2 cups sour cream
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon celery salt
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
Add shallots and sauté for 15 minutes more until onions and shallots are dark brown. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 to 6 minutes, then chop into 1/4-inch pieces. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, celery salt, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Fold in onion mixture. Chill at least 1 hour or overnight, prior to serving.
Trust me on this. You’re going to want to try this out and share with others. The sweetness of the caramelized onions blend so perfectly with the creaminess of the sour cream and the bite of the Worcestershire sauce. Just be careful you don’t eat too much because that will be easy to do.
