  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter or dairy-free butter
  • 2 large sweet white onions about 1 pound, diced
  • teaspoons kosher or fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream or dairy-free alternative
  • Juice of 2 lemons about ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 5-10 dashes hot sauce
  • Gluten-free chips or sliced vegetables for serving
  1. Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat until the butter melts. Add the onions, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft and browned, about 45 minutes. Let cool.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, and hot sauce. Stir in the onions and taste. Add more salt, pepper, or hot sauce if desired. Refrigerate until cold, at least 2 hours. (Can be made up to 2 days ahead. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.) Serve with chips or sliced vegetables.
