Homemade French Onion Dip

Homemade French Onion Dip: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Recently at a Sunday coffee hour my girls had some veggie straw and a dip. They insisted that I try it because it was so good. I asked them if it was french onion dip and of course they responded with "I don't know.". So I tried it and confirmed it was french onion dip. My girls then asked if I could make some and buy some veggie straws to go with it. 

Of course I was more than willing to make a homemade version, but I really wanted it to be without the packaged french onion mix. So after a bit of looking I found one and tried it out. Initially I did not add salt to the dip, but when I tried it, it was just not the same. So I added a bit of salt and it amazed me at how much better it tasted, it tasted just like store bought. 

I hear it all the time how a little bit of salt brings the dish together, but with cooking low sodium foods I never add extra salt. So trying the dip before adding salt and after adding salt I really noticed the difference.

Homemade French Onion Dip
Ingredients: 
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon dried chopped onions
1 teaspoons onion powder
1 pinch garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried parsley

Directions:
In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients, mixing until well blended. Taste and adjust any seasonings if needed. Refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the flavors to blend and the dried onions to soften.

Enjoy!!!
