I love caramelized onions on almost anything. Which is why I also love this easy to make french onion dip. Most store bought french onion dips are pretty high in sodium in order to preserve them for months on end. This low sodium french onion dip recipe is packed with flavor, and has only 33mg of sodium per 2 tbsp serving. It’s a win-win for anyone following a sodium restricted diet like me! The key to this recipe is to really render down the onions so they are beautifully caramelized and packed with flavor. If you liked this recipe please comment below and let me know what you think!
