No. 1 : Quick Recipe

Vidalia Onion Dip

  • 2 Cups Water
  • ½ Cup White Vinegar
  • ½ – 1 Cup Raw Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Sea Salt
  • 6 Cups Vidalia Onions, chopped
  • 3/4 Cup Olive or Avocado Oil Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tsp Celery Seed
  • 1 Dash Hot Sauce
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire Sauce

Step One

In saucepan over high heat bring water, sugar and vinegar to a rolling boil. (Taste the syrup with only ½ cup of sugar added – if you’d like it sweeter just add the remaining sugar. Put onions in large bowl and pour vinegar syrup over them. Place in fridge at least 8 hours or overnight. 

Step Two

Next day, drain liquid from onions and add mayonnaise, yogurt, celery seed, hot sauce and Worcestershire. Serve with crudités, crackers or chips

Did you know that sweet onions are grown all over the world? Here in Georgia they are called Vidalia onions, Texas claims “Texas Sweets”, Washington state grows “Walla Walla Sweets” and Hawaii, Bermuda and France all grow sweet onions, too. 

No. 3 : Clever Idea

In any dip calling for mayo or cream cheese you can substitute half of the amount required for the equal amount of Greek yogurt for the ingredient. The yogurt brings a little protein and less fat, and since it’s so creamy, no one will catch your better-for-you secret.

MAN Chenin Blanc South Africa About $15.00

Chenin Blanc’s origins are from the Loire Valley in France, but the grape grows deliciously in South Africa too, where its often called “Steen”. Man Vintners Chenin Blanc is crisp, clean and refreshing with enough body to stand up to the creamy pungent onion dip. A find for about $15 and great with this zesty fresh-tasting dip. The name, MAN, comes from the first initials of the three winemaker’s wive’s names.
