Ingredients

  • 2 cups yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch of sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 oz blue cheese, crumbled (about 2/3 cup)
  • 2 tbsp Port
  • 6 oz plain low-fat or nonfat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tbsps scallions, chopped
  • salt and cayenne pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Caramelize onion in olive oil with sugar and salt in a heavy skillet over medium low-heat. Stir occasionally to prevent scorching, but do not stir too often. They will brown better if left alone. After 5 minutes of cooking, cover the pan (the lid keeps moisture inside so the onions won't burn easily). Cook until brown and very soft, 20-25 minutes. Stir in the port, scraping up any brown residue left on the bottom of the pan; cool onions slightly.
  • Blend cheese, yogurt, mayonnaise, Worcestershire and lemon juice in a bowl.
  • Add cooled onions, scallions, salt and cayenne to taste; stir to blend.  Cover and chill at least 2 hours but 24 hours is preferred. The dip really changes flavor over that time. 
  • Serve with potato chips.
