This crave-worthy dip is loaded with the ultimate onion flavor. It's creamy and cool and is a must-make for any appetizer spread.
- Sour cream and mayo create the perfect creamy base.
- Red and sweet onions, shallots, scallions, and chives are all readily available year-round.
- Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder round out the flavors.
- White pepper is great in light-colored dips because it blends in. Black pepper can certainly be used as well.
See the recipe card for complete instructions and ingredient amounts.
- Heat a grill pan over medium heat and brush the sweet and red onions and scallions with oil.
- Grill the onions on both sides until brown and slightly charred and tender. An outdoor grill can also be used.
- Chop the grilled onions into small pieces. Add to a mixing bowl with sour cream, mayo, shallots, seasonings, and Worcestershire sauce.
- Stir together. Add the chopped chives and stir again.
- Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl and garnish with more chives.
- Serve with chips or your favorite fresh veggies.
>Crackers, crostini, and pretzels are great for dipping. Potato chips like a sturdy kettle-cooked variety will hold up well.
>Veggies, such as carrot and celery sticks, cucumbers, bell pepper slices, and broccoli or cauliflower florets are all great options.
>Onion dip is also delicious on top of a burger. Skip the ketchup or mayo, and spread on bold onion flavor!
