Here’s a ridiculously easy onion dip that comes together in 5 minutes and rocks every party! It’s one of my favorite recipes in my eternal, “less-calorie more-protein” campaign. You know, the one where everything is secretly healthy? This Guiltless French Onion Dip got game, yo!
Guiltless French Onion Dip
There are sooooo many things to love about this dip!
- Made with mostly Nonfat Greek yogurt, so you’re getting a bunch of added protein (and way less calories) than a mayo or sour cream-based dip.
- Takes 5 minutes to whip this up guys…only 5 minutes…then ya chill!
- You’re in control of the ingredients – this means you avoid unnecessary, added sugars, salt, and MSG that you might find in a pre-packaged French Onion Soup mix.
- It’s vegetarian-friendly! [just skip the worcestershire sauce]
- It’s good on veggies, chips, sandwiches…you name it!
Why do they call it French Onion dip?
I have no idea…because there are so many conflicting stories, I don’t know what to believe. If you happen to know, drop me a line in the comments. I’ll love to hear it!
Can you make onion dip with sour cream?
You sure can! You simply substitute it in place of the yogurt and mayo. But realize, it won’t be guiltless…and I’m obsessed with that version.
Mainly because I want the added protein and less saturated fat.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this Guiltless French Onion Dip
- nonfat Greek yogurt
- mayonnaise (optional)
- dried onion flakes
- Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce
- salt and black pepper, to taste
Here are the tools you’ll find handy
- small mixing bowl
- stainless whisk
- glass storage container
Both are made with nonfat Greek yogurt. Shocker!
This recipe has been tried and tested on many occasions with multiple people…even kids! The results? Nobody ever says, “ewwwww, this tastes like you cheated with healthy ingredients!”
Make it a day or two in advance…for any occasion. I’ve made it for picnics, dinner parties, lunch boxes, sandwich spreads, tailgating appetizers, and midnight snacks!
