Caramelized Onion Dip is the perfect party food - it's easy to make, and even easier to eat! The key to making the perfect Caramelized Onion Dip is in the caramelization of the onions.



2 T. extra virgin olive oil

2 T. unsalted butter

1 large yellow onion, ends removed and sliced root to tip ¼” thick

2 t. dried rosemary

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

3 T. apple cider vinegar

2 T. real maple syrup

4 oz. cream cheese

½ c. sour cream

2 T. fresh chives, finely chopped, divided

To serve:

Vegetable crudités and/or gluten-free crackers


1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the

onion and rosemary and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook,

stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden-brown, approximately 25-30


2. Deglaze the skillet by adding the apple cider vinegar and gently scraping up

any brown bits off the bottom with a spatula. Drizzle the maple syrup on top

and stir to combine. Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes.


3. Transfer the onions to a mixing bowl and add the cream cheese, sour cream,

and one tablespoon fresh chives. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste,

and stir to combine.

4. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and garnish with the remaining fresh chives.

Serve immediately with an assortment of vegetable crudités and/or gluten-free

crackers. Enjoy!
