Onion Dip Two Ways

Onion Dip

Once you start making homemade onion dip, you’ll never go back to those little envelopes of dehydrated onions again. When you’re making onion dip at home, there are two ways it can go; the traditional route with mayo and sour cream or the healthier path with Greek yogurt.

Our two tasty onion dip recipes work for whatever mood you’re in. The healthier version substitutes Greek yogurt for the mayo and sour cream in the more traditional version. They’re both delicious and way better than the dips you get in the store.
