Caramelized Onion Dip

Summer is so close, you can almost smell it. After a long winter, I look forward to being outside with our family and friends. And whenever we are together, I can guarantee you that there will be food. Lots of food. We always have chips, guacamole and dip out on the table for everyone to enjoy. I make this caramelized onion dip every chance I get. It is a delicious and perfect treat with chips.

The time it takes to caramelize the onions is absolutely worth it because that is what makes this dip so amazing.

You can make this caramelized onion dip ahead of time. I like to caramelize the onions ahead of time and then refrigerate them. It makes putting the dip together just that much easier. I also prefer making the dip ahead of time so that the flavors have a chance to meld together. If you have time, I would make this dip at least two days in advance.

This delicious dip is dairy, egg and gluten free and vegetarian. If you are vegan, use vegan mayonnaise. It’s great when no one has to worry about allergies or food preferences when eating this dip.

Instructions
Caramelize Onions
  1. Add olive oil to a skillet and heat on medium low.
  2. Add thinly sliced onions in an even layer and cook on medium low, stirring occasionally. Total caramelizing time will be 25-30 minutes, depending on how thinly the onions are sliced.
  3. After ten minutes, add the salt and both sugars. Continue cooking on low, stirring occasionally, until the onions are a rich brown color.
  4. Once the desired color is reached, stir in the red wine vinegar, scraping the bottom of the sauce pan to deglaze. Cover the sauce pan and cook on low until the vinegar has been cooked off.
  5. Remove from heat and allow the onions to cool.
  6. If cooking the onions in advance, refrigerate in an airtight container until needed.
Dip Assembly
