A deliciously creamy and sweet dip that will make you the hit of every party, ever!


  • 1 large sweet onion, such as Vidalia, sliced thinly, then “chunked” — not diced, and not long strands… just big chunks.
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 1, 16 ounce container of sour cream (If you’re watching calories, light is fine. I prefer Daisy brand… they only use cream and cultures. Have you ever read the other brand’s ingredient list?)


  1. In a skillet, melt you butter over medium heat.
  2. Add your onions in, and caramelize over medium heat. This takes some time — don’t rush it — you don’t want burned onions!
  3. After your onions are caramelized, set aside in a large bowl to cool.
  4. After about 20 minutes, stir in the carton of sour cream, salt and pepper.
  5. Let this sit. Overnight is best, but if you really can’t wait, give it an hour.
  6. Before serving, taste with whatever “vessel” you are using — make sure you’ve added enough salt!

  • For an even lower point version, use fat free, plain Greek yogurt. For two tablespoons, you’ll only use 1 smartpoint!
