Made from fresh ingredients, this green onion dip recipe is a healthier stand in than store-bought flavor packets. Add it to your next Superbowl party or holiday fare.
We all have favorite indulgent food that comes out at certain times of the year. For me? It’s green onion dip. It was on the snack table at every holiday party when I was growing up. The “special” green onion dip recipe we used? Let’s just say it started with a packet that had a long, unpronounceable ingredient list.
This green onion dip recipe starts with sour cream, but instead of the little packet, the flavoring comes from fresh green onions and spices. (You can make your own sour cream, too, if you have access to fresh milk!)
This is easy to mix up, and honestly, the ingredients are something I generally have on hand. Making green onion dip from scratch is another one of those easy conversions from store bought to homemade.
Does this taste exactly like the little green packet? I’m not gonna lie – it doesn’t. But it’s good. Good enough that my son commented on it being a really good dip — before he knew the backstory.
Serve it with fresh veggies or homemade sweet potato chips.
