Caramelized Onion and Bacon Dip

Recipe photo courtesy of Jonathan Lovekin

If you love yet hate that packaged onion soup mix dip, this is the version for you. It is a richer, deeper-flavored, cleaner-ingredient excuse for a potato-chip-dipping marathon. The dip can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.Excerpted from "Mad Hungry Cravings" by Lucinda Scala Quinn, Artisan Books, March 2013.

    Warning: Highly addictive! Great onion dip recipe. I used Japanese rice vinegar because it's mellower, just my preference. The bacon really stands out so be sure to use a variety you love. I use applewood for that hint of smoke. It is delicious dip for kettle chips.

    Love, love, love this dip! The flavors are wonderful and if you use LSQ's mayonnaise recipe to make your own for this it's even better! I did use one of those onion chopper things so my onions were small squares and there was no problem with stringiness. I also chopped the bacon smaller to have some in each bite and cooked it pretty crisp. This stuff is addictive and no butter taste to me. I wouldn't call it a light anything though. Where are the instructions to sub kale for the bacon?
