Once everything’s all settled down and combined, though, you wonder why anyone would go for the grocery-store-powder-sour-cream stuff. This is real dip the way it should be: oniony, herby, tangy and sweet. So good!
- sweet onion - 1 large, about 2 cups, diced
- olive oil - 2 tbs
- garlic powder - 2 tsp
- fresh thyme - 2 tbs, chopped
- pepper - 1/4 tsp, or to taste
- kosher salt - to taste
- plain Greek yogurt - 1 c
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saute, stirring frequently, until golden, beginning to caramalize, and reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper, and cook another minute.
Transfer to a bowl and stir in yogurt. Refrigerate overnight and serve with crackers or crudites.
Make ahead and store for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
