A timeless dip. Some foods never ever go out of style, this is one of them. In my very humble opinion.
This afternoon, I was looking for something to eat and nothing in my kitchen was looking overly appetizing. Then, for some strange reason, this dip popped into my head. Bizarre. I haven't made it since 2011 when I hosted a Mad Men themed dinner party. Oh, what a night that was. Between the pink cocktails and the baked Alaska that caught on fire (okay, that might have had something to do with the pink cocktails), it was one indescribable and memorable evening. This dip was a success though. Keeping in mind it was put together well before cocktail hour.
So, with fond memories of this dip, I indulged and basked in the moment.
Note: When caramelizing the onions, you may need to add a splash of water to the pan so they don't burn and stick. This will most likely depend on the type of pan you are using and even heat distribution.
A great dip for anything really
Topped off with just a little parsley to add a splash of colour
French Onion Dip
1 Onion, diced small
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 Cup/120 ml Greek yoghurt
1/4 Cup/80 ml Mayonnaise
1 Garlic clove, crushed
1/2 Teaspoon sea salt
Dash of fresh cracked black pepper
In a medium skillet set over medium heat, add the olive oil and onions. Cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring regularly. You want to get the onions quite dark and caramelized as this will give you the best flavour. Once the onions have caramelized, remove from heat and let cool.
In a large bowl, combine the Greek yoghurt, mayonnaise, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir in the caramelized onions. Stir well and serve with cracker, chips, or veggies.
