This appetizer recipe for Skinny Caramelized Onion and Dill Dip is made healthier by using Greek yogurt and light sour cream. Caramelized onion and dill is my favorite flavor combination to serve for a party.
The start of summer is so close I can almost taste it! There’s no better time than a holiday weekend to post an appetizer recipe that can be shared with friends.
I originally made a version of this dip two years ago and brought it back out of the archives last weekend for a dinner gathering. I think this new “skinny” version is even better.
This dip is made healthier using 2% Greek yogurt and light sour cream. Adding a caramelized yellow onion and dried dill is the best flavor combination. Fresh dill will also work, but I find dried dill to include a more intense flavor. I paired this dip with crunchy snap peas and pita chips.
Have a wonderful long weekend!
Skinny Caramelized Onion and Dill Dip
A healthier version of my favorite appetizer dip, with caramelized onions and dill.
- 1 cup light sour cream
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp dried dill weed
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 medium yellow onion
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp butter
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 10 tbsp water
Chop the onion into small pieces. Add 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and 1 teaspoon butter to a saute pan on medium.
Once the oil shimmers, add onions. Continuing cooking onions on medium and stir every few minutes. After 10 minutes, add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the pan and stir.
Continue stirring onions occasionally for ~30 more minutes, adding 3 Tablespoons of water in 10 minute intervals.
Remove onions from the heat and let cool for ~10 minutes. While the onions are cooling, stir together the sour cream, Greek yogurt, chopped dill, salt and pepper.
Add the cooled onions and chill the dip until ready to serve.
