    Two key things and this will be the BEST onion dip you ever ate:

    1. Bizz the whole thing with a hand held blender for 10 seconds at the end…this helps blend all the flavours.
    2. Store in fridge OVERNIGHT before serving…the flavours deepen and get richer with time…this dip is a little bland if you eat it right after you make it, but the next day it is incredible.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

    I used this recipe as a base, and tweaked it to suit my personal preferences. I was very pleased with the results.

    • Same amount of olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, SMALL diced (I decided to reduce the amount of onion based on some of the other comments, and I was glad that I did).
    • Same amount of brown sugar
    • Same amount of Balsamic vinegar
    • Same amount of salt
    • Decreased pepper to ¼ tsp
    • Same amount of sour cream
    • Same amount of mayo
    • Added 3 slices of diced precooked bacon (I added the bacon after the onions were cooked for 20 minutes)
    • I doubled the Worcestershire sauce
    • Instead of garlic powder, I used dried garlic from a mill, a bit more “fresher” and not so fine in texture
    • I mixed the garlic and Worcestershire sauce into the sour cream/mayo before adding the onion/bacon
    • Chilled for one hour – taste tested – good. Waited another hour and tasted great!
    • I used this to stuff mini bell peppers and celery

    Have fun with this one. I plan to experiment with other dried herbs in place of the garlic.

    I made this as a raw veggie dip. I altered it to make it dairy-free for my daughter, using vegan mayo and non-dairy “sour cream”. There were way too many onions, for my personal liking (it was so chunky, it didn’t even look like dip, but more like onions in a thick sauce), so I used a strainer to remove them–after leaving it in the fridge overnight, so that the wonderful caramelized onion flavor throughly permeated the dip.

    I’ve got only one question.For how long can you keep it in the fridge?

    Wonderful! We made this dip this afternoon. We used 2 1/2 onions and it was a lot of onion, but the dip was savory and sweet. Ate with Wavy Lays. What a treat!
