Homemade French Onion Dip

1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp brown sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp balsamic vingegar
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1/8 tsp white pepperĀ 
salt to taste


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle 1-2 tsp of brown sugar over the onions, reduce heat to low and continue to cook for about another 10 minutes, until onions turn deep golden and are caramelized. Add the minced onion and and balsamic vinegar. Stir gently and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

In a medium bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, parsley, and pepper. When onions have cooled off, add to the sour cream mixture and stir. Use a stick blender to puree the dip to desired consistency. Add salt to taste, if desired. Refrigerate until cold or overnight. Serve with crackers, chips, veggies, or anything you wish!
