The Best French Onion Dip Recipe

You’re going to love the savory taste of this homemade French onion dip! It replicates the rich flavors of French onion soup or French onion chicken but takes a fraction of the time to make. 

Traditional recipes are made with a base of cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise. However, for this caramelized onion dip, I lightened things up a bit by using a combination of Greek yogurt and mayonnaise. 

You get all the same creamy texture and tangy onion taste with a little less fat and an added boost of protein! It’s perfect for holidays, game days, or as an everyday snack!

French Onion Dip Ingredients

Olive Oil: a good high-quality olive oil is used to caramelize the onions and sauté the garlic.

Onions: I like to use sweet yellow onions for this recipe.

Garlic: you’ll need at least 3 cloves for this recipe. Feel free to add more if you want even more garlic flavor. Fresh cloves are best! 

Greek Yogurt: I like to use full-fat whole milk yogurt in this recipe because it has the best flavor and creamiest consistency, but feel free to use low-fat or non-fat if you prefer. Just make sure you grab plain yogurt and nothing flavored! 

Mayonnaise: Use a high-quality mayonnaise that you enjoy the taste of for the best results. I like to use one made from avocado oil.

Worcestershire Sauce: just a splash adds lots of depth and incredible flavor to the dip.

Fresh Herbs: last but certainly not lease are plenty of fresh chives and parsley for the perfect herb flavor and a pop of color.

Ingredient Substitutions

Mayonnaise – not a fan of mayonnaise? Swap it out for more Greek yogurt instead.

Greek Yogurt – you could swap this for sour cream if you prefer. If you need to make a dairy free version of this dip you could use your favorite plain non-dairy Greek yogurt instead.

Add some heat – stir in some crushed red pepper flakes or a dash of hot sauce for a little kick of heat.

Worcestershire Sauce – if you need to ensure this dip is gluten free you can swap the Worcestershire sauce for coconut aminos instead.
