Locavore Onion DipOkay, I confess. I love the old onion dip made with sour cream and dried onion soup mix. When I started eating as a locavore, I just had to come up with an alternative that tasted as good.

Here’s the recipe I concocted. I actually like it even better than the old version. Let me know what you think.

Note: Locavore Mayonnaise is used as an ingredient in this recipe.
