Fun food today!  Because chip dip is just plain fun.  I don’t know why, it just is.  Because that’s what you serve at parties maybe?

In my mind, chip dip goes with playing cards.  That’s when it always seemed to make an appearance in my house.

When lots of people were around, and generally when we were playing cards.  Family gatherings + cards = chip dip.

So obviously it’s fun food.  That’s just math.

My favourite kinds of chip dip have always been French onion and dill pickle.

So when I had the opportunity to come up with a recipe using Maille’s new Gherkins with Caramelized Onions, chip dip was clearly my first idea.

Pickles and caramelized onions all in one dip?  That’s my idea of the perfect snack!

Granted, there’s no dill in these pickles, so it’s not dill pickle.  But that’s okay, because these gherkins have so much flavour.

I’ve actually never loved gherkins, I always thought they were a little too sweet.

But these new gherkins with caramelized onions?  Seriously, so good.  I had to rush to get my recipe testing done before my family and I devoured them all!

They’re amazing.

So even if you don’t typically grab the gherkins off the pickle tray, you should probably try these ones.

I know I’ll be getting them again.

And I will likely be making this gherkin and caramelized onion dip with them fairly often.

We ate far too much of this the day I made it.  Although, when does anyone ever have chip dip and not eat far too much?  Is it even possible to stop after only a little bit?

If you can, don’t tell me – I’d like to go on believing that everyone lacks self control around chip dip!

If you’re looking for an easy snack to make, try this gherkin and caramelized onion dip.

It’s super easy to make – caramelize some onions, mix a few things together and chill the dip for a few hours.  That’s it.

And then you have a happy family.  Because chip dip is fun!

    This recipe made me a subscriber. Thank you! I’d try to make a unique version of German rouladen, using the Maille Gherkins with Caramelized Onions.

    That dip looks delish! Thanks Stacy for another great recipe- BTW I made your coconut cashews last weekend and they were a huge hit at a family party. Have a good weekend – Holly

      Thanks Holly! So glad you liked the cashews – my husband has been asking me to make those again, they’re so good! 🙂

    Funny that Gherkins should come up on your blog, just as I’m thinking about plans for Thanksgiving dinner. Christmas and Thanksgiving are the two dinners that we absolutely HAVE to have gherkins in the house!

    I’ve never really thought about which brand to use, but I’ll definitely go out and pick up this one (Maille) just because you said so!!! lol (talk about trust!)

    I’m also eager to try out the dip recipe, too. It looks yummy, Stacey.

    1. stacey says:

      This one is their new flavour, and they’re really good. Go grab the coupon (link in the post) if you want to try them! Also, glad you trust me so completely! 🙂

    1. stacey says:

      I seriously hid them at the back of the fridge so they wouldn’t all just disappear straight out of the jar before I made my recipe! They’re really good. And now I need to try them in potato salad cause that sounds fantastic!
