Onion Dip

Here's a dip reminiscent of the stuff where you stir onion soup mix into sour cream, but this takes it up a quotient--fancyish enough to serve at your Academy Awards party tonight.  Try the variations and present a trio...

It's best served with sturdy kettle-cooked potato chips or bagel crisps.

Onion Dip
Makes about 3 cups.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion
2 cups sour cream
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Kosher salt to taste

In a food processor, finely chop the onion.

In a sauté pan, cook the onion in olive oil over medium-high heat, until softened, about five minutes.

Return onion to the food processor.  Add the sour cream, lemon juice and paprika.  Pulse until combined.  Season with salt to taste.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • Top with poppy seeds, sesame seeds and dehydrated onion and serve with everything bagel chips.
  • Add prepared horseradish to taste.
  • Mix in some Ranch dressing mix.
  • Leave the paprika out and stir in smoked salmon and fresh dill.
