Homemade Onion Dip

With the holiday season starting soon, it's important to plan out what you plan to serve at your party. Sometimes onion dip might be an afterthought, but it can be the star of your party food tray.  Kate Winslow, who wrote the cookbook Onions Etcetera told Tonia's Kitchen about her recipe for delicious, homemade onion dip that really brings out the flavor! Kate told Tonia she starts with yellow onions, and you can also use greek yogurt for the cream and butter to fry the onions in. In fact, Kate says there's nothing the smell of onions frying in butter, it really brings her back to her childhood!
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 2 plump garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives, for garnish
Combine the onions, garlic and olive oil in a medium skillet over moderately high heat. Season with salt and plenty of black pepper and cook, stirring from time to time, until golden, about 10 minutes. Scrape into a bowl to cool. Add the scallions, sour cream, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce to the onions. Season the dip with plenty of black pepper and mix well. Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding more lemon juice to taste. Go easy on adding more salt since you will likely be using this dip with salty potato chips. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and top with the chives.
