First of all, thanks to Dave at My Year on The Grill for featuring a finger lickin’ good review of both my new release, Finger Lickin’ Dead, and my peach cobbler recipe! Thanks Dave!
One fun thing about summer is the catching-up I get to do. You know how the fall and spring can be—always so busy! So it’s fun to actually hang out and really visit with friends—at the pool, cookouts, and little get-togethers.
Usually, to make things easy, we all bring a little something to eat and share with others. Of course, there are always a ton of dips at these gatherings—which is great for me, because I love them! But the dip that I frequently bring is a little bit different from some of the others…and everyone seems to really enjoy it.
It’s also a featured recipe in Finger Lickin’ Dead. :) Because Lulu likes quick and easy almost as much as I do.
Vidalias are a favorite onion of mine—sweet and Southern. But any sweet onion will do. Soak them as long as you can because it really does bring out the sweetness and flavor in this dip.
Lulu’s Vidalia Onion Dip
5 or 6 sliced Vidalia onions
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup vinegar
2 cups water
½ cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon celery seed
Thinly slice the onions and soak them for 2 to 4 hours in the vinegar, sugar, and water. Drain well. Toss onions with mayonnaise and celery seed. Serve on crackers.
Another oven-free recipe! :) (Fingers crossed these 100 degree days will end soon!)
