Best Ever Onion Dip

Prep time 10 minutes
Cook time 30 minutes
Total time 40 minutes
One of the most flavorful onion dips I've ever had.


  • 2 heaped tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cups diced onions (I prefer sweet yellow onions, like Vidalia)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sour cream (for a lighter version, I've used reduced or fat free sour cream, or plain Greek yogurt)
  • 3/4 cups mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper (white pepper, if you have it)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (yes, this comes in twice)


Best if refrigerated at least overnight so the flavors can develop. This also make a delicious sandwich spread - think leftover meatloaf or pork roast! Try it in a chicken salad or just on grilled chicken.


Step 1 Add oil to a saute pan over medium heat. Add onions and salt. Cook the onions until they are caramelized. 20-30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
Step 2 Mix the remaining ingredients together and add the cooled onions.
Step 3 Refrigerate. Stir before serving.
