Greek Yogurt French Onion Dip - The Real Way!

OMG! This dip is so amazing! I bought 5 pounds of onions to make French Onion Soup this week and it sparked the idea of making a French Onion Dip to go along with my Sea Salted Baked Potato Wedges. This is not your run of the mill, processed, loaded with MSG Lipton French Onion soup out a of package kind of dip! This is the real stuff and it's healthy...total bonus! Plain greek yogurt is the base of the dip and the rest is basically caramelized onions. How good is that? This dip is not the quickest to make but the extra steps are so worth the superb taste! While I was mixing all of the ingredients I asked Tyler and Zachary to taste it and they were like this is the best! I tried to get Nate to taste the dip but he wouldn't go near it...anything having to do with onions is off limits to him. Onions to Nate are like kryptonite to Superman or like garlic to vampires! I guess he won't be eating my French Onion Soup tomorrow. Zachary asked what I was making the dip for and I told him the Potato Wedges, he then proceeded to tell me how vegetables, potato chips or bread would be really good with the dip. And he's absolutely right! So I cut up cut up some vegetables and bread and wala! This dip is so versatile that you could use it as a spread or even as a topping on soups and stews. Salute to the healthy delicious Greek Yogurt French Onion Dip!
