Note: Slow-cooking or carmelizing onions brings out their natural sweetness. Their rich flavor makes old-fashioned creamy onion dip worth revisiting. Bonus: This version has only a fraction of the calories and fat of the original. Serve with baked pita chips.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 1/4 cups slivered yellow onions
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces low-fat cream cheese
1/2 cup nonfat Greek-style yogurt
4 ounces low-fat sour cream
Freshly ground black pepper
- Heat the love oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and salt. Saute 35 to 40 minutes until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.
- Place cooled onions in food processor. Pulse several times to chop. Remove 1/2 of the onions and place them in a mixed bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor. Process until smooth. Spoon into mixing bowl and combine with chopped onions.
