How to Store and Make Ahead:
Onion dip can be made up to 2 days in advance and kept refrigerated in an airtight container. I love these deli containers for dips and leftovers.
It’s really easy to pick up the store bought onion dip when you are craving it, but we love this homemade version even more. Slow cooking the onions adds so much flavor to the dip and is well worth the effort.
