Mary Anne's Homemade Oklahoma Onion Dip

Dips are great to serve at a party, sports gathering, or as an appetizer before dinner! They can be savory or sweet, or hot or cold. Many savory cold dips start off with sour cream as a base. Back in the 1950s, when Lipton's combined its dried onion soup mix with sour cream, a classic dip became part of food history. Here's a tasty alternative to the boxed recipe.

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2-2 cups diced onion (one medium to large onion)

3-4 cloves garlic, sliced

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 1/2 cups sour cream, reduced fat or regular

1/2 to 3/4 cup mayonnaise, use the larger amount if you like a creamier dip

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Tiny Splash Worcestershire sauce

1-2 green onions, sliced for garnish

Fritos, chips, or veggies, for serving

  • In a sauté pan over medium heat add oil, heat and add onions, garlic and salt. Cook the onions and garlic until they are caramelized, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat. With a slotted spoon remove from pan and place in small bowl. Set aside to cool.
  • In your mixer's bowl, blend the rest of the ingredients. Add the cooled onions and garlic. Place in serving bowl and garnish with sliced green onions. Refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to become BFF's. Stir again before serving.

Note: You can substitute nonfat Greek yogurt for the sour cream if you want a healthier alternative.
