the world's best (and healthiest) french onion dip

last year i went all out for the super bowl. sure, it was the only time all season my family had sat down together to watch football, but it was also a very good excuse to make all those wonderful junk foods people consume while watching sports so, what the heck. ;)

i found this recipe here originally, but with some tweaking, it turned into what is featured below.

french onion dip

2 C plain yogurt, whole milk if you have it
1 large red onion, diced
4 T butter
1/2 t kosher salt
1/4 t black pepper
1/2 t curry powder or turmeric
1/4 t celery salt

the day before (12-24 hours before) you want to make the dip put a strainer over a bowl and line with paper towels or cheesecloth. place the yogurt in the strainer and let the whey drain off. you are making the healthiest, most probiotic rich sour cream! you're welcome.

when you are ready to finish making the dip, melt the butter in a pan and add the diced onion. cook over medium-low heat for 20-30 minutes, stirring often so the onions soften and caramelize and don't brown or burn. allow the onions to cool for 20-30 minutes after they are finished cooking before adding them and all the seasonings to the strained yogurt. once everything is mixed together, taste, adjust seasonings (may need to add more salt or curry/tumeric) and consume with great fervor...with or without a sporting event on television.
