Caramelized Onion Dip
Today I tried out a caramelised onion dip, which goes great with a variety of potato chips, tortilla chips, crackers and vegetables.

The dip is quick and easy to make, just before serving on the table, I would suggest to keep it a bit in the refrigerator. Of course, the dip is very tasty at room temperature as well, if you have no time to refrigerate it. The dip salinity and sweetness can be adjusted according to the amount of salt and sugar. I prefer a little bit sweeter onion dip, so according to my recipe  the dip is not too salty, the taste balance is actually perfect.

This dip also fits very well to make hot sandwiches or to flavor pasta. Thus, if you have some onion dip left from the snack table, then you can use it really great with other meals.

Have a great snacking! 🙂
