The Line Forms Right Here Onion Dip

Makes enough for a 16 person party

8 ounces sour cream

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 heaping tablespoon instant diced, or dried minced onion

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon dried parsley (or fresh)

2 large or 3 smaller scallions, thinly sliced white and green parts, save some of the green for garnish

Couple dashes hot sauce

Mix it all up, chill for a few hours or overnight, then serve garnished with sliced green scallions. Present with ruffle chips - the kind that have ridges!


On Wednesday, June 29, 2022, I had the honor of mixing up a batch of this wonderful dip with my friends Kidd and Eileen on WJLA's Good Morning Washington, and even demonstrated my great recipe for "Pigs on the Patio" (pigs-in-a-blanket!). Click the photo below to go to the fun segment.
