Michael’s Onioney, Onion Dip. With Onions!

Enhance onion soup dip mix with green onions, buttermilk and mayonnaise for an oniony, creamy onion dip.

Oniony, Onion Dip.


There are a lot of recipes on the backs of ingredients that are themselves tasty and can also be doctored up for a taster recipe.  For example, onion soup mix has a recipe for onion dip on the back of the box that consists of onion soup and sour cream.  My family used to make this dip a lot when I was a kid and I really liked it.

I love onions, especially red and green onions. If you’ve ever bought green onions you usually end up with a lot more than you can probably use before they go bad. That being the case, I decided to enhance the back of the box onion soup dip recipe with some left over green onions. Now the onion dip is more onioney! I added some buttermilk and mayonnaise to make it creamier, seasoned with salt and pepper and ended up with my very own dip.  I call it Michael’s Onioney, Onion Dip. With Onions!
