This is the best onion dip I have ever had. It is so worth the bit of time it takes. You will be hard pressed to find a better onion dip recipe and it is a guarantee you won't find these flavors in a paper pouch! It is frequently requested and always an enormous hit at gatherings.

    NOTE: I do not add any salt to this because once the onions are caramelized they give off a salty taste.
