I know, it’s just so easy to grab one of those little packets and a tub of sour cream and have onion dip in a flash.  Did you know it’s not that much harder to make it from scratch.  If you have a party coming up this weekend, I’d definitely try out this recipe for some of the best onion dip you have ever sampled!

2 Tbs            olive oil
1 1/2 cups      diced onions
1/4 tsp      salt
1 1/2 cups      sour cream
3/4 cup      mayonnaise
1/4 tsp      garlic powder
1/4 tsp      freshly-ground white pepper
1/2 tsp      salt

Heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat.  Add onions and salt. Cook the onions until they are caramelized, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Mix the remaining ingredients, and then add the cooled onions. Refrigerate and mix well before serving.
