Vidalia Onion Dip | #recipe

I have been sitting on this recipe for nearly 10 years now, yowza! A good friend of mine gifted me with this recipe back when recipe swaps (on actual written recipe cards) were all the rage. It’s been sitting in my binder of “appetizer recipes” ever since, and while organizing and purging this weekend, I realized that I’ve never shared it with you. Doh! If you’re a dip person (and, really, who isn’t?), then this is definitely going to make your day.

As far as recipes go, this one couldn’t be much simpler. Only four ingredients, and the same exact quantity of each – 2 cups each of chopped Vidalia onions, mayonnaise, shredded Swiss cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Mix, bake, eat. I love the sweet bite of the Vidalia onions paired with the cheeses; it’s totally and completely addicting. Once you try it, you won’t be at all surprised by the fact that my Chief Culinary Consultant and I ate it for lunch yesterday. Yes, just dip and pita chips. Nothing else. Lunch. Done.

The recipe as given to me says to serve with pita chips or breadsticks (I feel like the pita chips recommendation was so ahead of its time 10 years ago!), but this would also be fabulous with pretzels, tortilla chips or baguette slices. Basically, any and all carbs are welcome at this party.
