I attended thirteen
different schools during my “wonder bread” years. We moved constantly until I
was in high school. By then, thankfully my family was in one place. One thing
was constant, though….my mother’s love for food from her southern childhood.
Sweet onions were one of her favorites, Vidalia to be exact. Of course!
Spring was around the corner
when this dip appeared at our table. Mother’s friends would send her the first
onions of the season, or if she still had a couple of carefully-saved-last-season
onions in the basement we would be treated to this favorite.
Easy to prepare, keeps
wonderful in the fridge, this is a dip that pairs perfectly with veggies and
crackers. Sometimes Mike and I will just load up a tray with fresh raw veggies,
like radishes, grape tomatoes, carrot, celery, and fennel sticks, and enjoy
Vidalia Onion Dip as a light dinner. Don’t miss out on trying this recipe – everyone
I have shared this fun way to enjoy southern sweet onions has loved it!
