"This dip is creamy and flavorful. It is suitable for a wide range of dipping vegetables, crackers, and plain old potato chips. This is best made the night before so the flavors will blend nicely." — wendy

dried dill weed
dried minced onion, rehydrated
Beau Monde ™ seasoning
I wanted to make this lighter so I used equal amounts of reduced fat mayonnaise, reduced fat sour cream and nonfat greek yogurt. I made this early this morning as I wanted it to sit and really mix the flavors together before dinner. I served sliced red peppers, broccoli flowerettes and carrot chips with this. Quite good! I'll make this again. I think this would be great with some fresh minced garlic and some diced green onion folded in, too.
Makes a lot of dip.
My mom has made this dip since before I was born and I love it. If you make it the night before you don't have to rehydrate the onion, just dump it in still dry and hard. It'll soften just fine. You can thin it with milk for salad dressing. For those not in the know, "Beau Monde" is a seasoned salt made by Spice Islands brand. There is a sub for it here on allrecipes but I've never tried it. You might want to if Spice Islands brand isn't available in your area. You could sub a different seasoned salt for it, but it is very strongly flavored so the dip won't be the same (not to say bad, just different).
I've been using a variation of this one for 20 years. I use minced fresh onion, and I use alot, possibly making a dill onion dip. Sorry, but I can't even IMAGINE this one served hot. Beau monde provides salt, so be sure not to add salt if using the beau monde.
I love this recipe. I make this every year and yes, it best made the day before. I follow the recipe exactly and each time it is perfect. I would not change a thing. I keep Beau Monde on hand, this is so good any time of the year!
We've used a version of this for years and LOVE it. We use chopped green onions in place of the dried and serve it in a pumpernickel bread bowl. The pumpernickel is also really good with the dip.
I thought this looked like an interesting recipe and tried it for a recent gathering. The guests loved it. Many asked for the recipe. I think it is better hot, rather than cold.
Excellent dip! Just loved it with fresh veggies. It reminds me of a recipe I lost a long time ago but have never forgotten. Can't wait for an excuse to make it again.
