Comforting and party-starting
Golden Onion & Thyme Dip

A good dip (the food kind) possesses remarkable powers.
   It’s comforting: You can cozy up on the couch with it and enjoy it with your favorite veggies, crackers or chips.
   It’s a party-starter: It can attract a crowd and get some conversation going.
   I’ve got a dip recipe that can do both of these things: Golden Onion & Thyme Dip (click for the recipe) from Fine Cooking magazine.
   It’s easy to make, family-friendly, and will suit any type of dipping material. The recipe suggests pita chips, and that’s definitely a good choice, but anything you associate with dipping will do.
   The dip will keep well for about three to five days in the fridge.
   One large Spanish onion or two large yellow onions, finely diced, are seasoned with salt and sautéd.
   The browned onions are transferred to a food processor and pulsed with cream cheese, sour cream, fresh thyme leaves and a pinch of cayenne until well-combined.
   Refrigerate until ready to serve.
