Easy, Delicious and Homemade! French Onion Dip That is WAY Better Than Store Bought

My husband is a HUGE football fan. And a large part of the home football viewing experience has always involved snacks. Prior to our less processed lifestyle, these snacks involved a lot of velveeta, store bought dip and other very processed foods. Luckily, most of these things aren’t really very hard to replace with a healthier, less processed version. My latest success in less processed snacks is French Onion Dip. Store bought tubs of dip, while easy, are loaded with unnatural ingredients, and are often ridiculously salty. Also, if someone says they made onion dip, it probably involves a package of dried soup mix, which is also loaded with strange ingredients and is super salty.

My homemade French Onion dip, on the other hand, has very few ingredients, is super flavorful without being crazy salty, and is very EASY to make!

Homemade French Onion Dip

1 large onion, chopped
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup fat free, plain greek yogurt
1 cup mayonnaise
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp white or black ground pepper

Add onions and olive oil to saute pan and cook on medium heat until onions are mushy and carmelized (15-20 minutes). Mix onions with the rest of the ingredients and refrigerate for at least an hour (the longer you refrigerate it, the better it gets).

And that’s it! You can adjust the salt and pepper for your taste. I like to serve this with kettle cut chips or pretzels, which are already salty on their own. If you serve it with veggies, you might want the dip to be a little bit saltier.
