Fresh, crunchy vegetables (crudite) taste great with the salty-sweet combo of this simple party dip.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small skillet, cook the bacon until the fat is rendered out. Drain bacon, reserving the fat in the pan.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add onions and salt. Cook onions over low heat, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and deep golden in color, about 1 hour. Add water if needed. Add the vinegar in the last minute of cooking. Cool to room temperature.

  • In a large bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, onions, and bacon.

  • Add vegetable oil to the skillet with bacon fat. Reheat on medium-high until the oil shimmers. Add the shallots, lower the heat, and cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Drain, and garnish dip with fried shallots.

Hands down one of the best dips I've ever made and consumed! I made this for a dinner party back in May and folks are still asking about it. It is perfectly salty and sweet and downright sinful!!!!
