Four-Onion Dip

  • Serves: 8; 2 tablespoons per serving
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes


Description

Four sources of onion team up to create a robust dip reminiscent of the traditional onion soup party dip, but with much less sodium. Serve with colorful raw vegetables for dippers.

 

Ingredients

2 tablespoons dehydrated minced onion
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1 medium green onion (green and white parts), chopped
2 tablespoons grated sweet onion, such as Vidalia, OsoSweet, Maui, Walla Walla, or Texas 1015
2 tablespoons shredded carrot
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon salt-free onion-and-herb seasoning blend
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red hot-pepper sauce
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
 

Cooking Instructions

In a small bowl, stir together the dehydrated onion and water. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients. Stir in the rehydrated onion. Let stand for 10 minutes. Serve at room temperature or cover and refrigerate for up to two days. The dip will thicken during the refrigeration time.
