Onion Dip from scratch

After a failed attempt of a different recipe from The Food Network to make something like this (I used old oil and it was awful) I was able to salvage the idea by using this one. Most of the recipes I find a very similar, but I liked this one because of the finely chopped onion. Who wants to scoop a dip and have an onion string slap them in face??

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced onions (1 large onion, color is your choice – I’ve used both white and yellow with success)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup mayonnaise (I would recommend using a little less – tastes too much like mayo for my liking otherwise)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper (black is fine, you can’t see it anyways)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

In a saute pan over medium heat add oil, heat and add onions and salt. Cook the onions until they are caramelized, about 20 minutes. I would use a lower heat and have it take longer rather the try to go too quickly and have fried onions, rather than carmelized.

Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Mix the rest of the ingredients, and then add the cooled onions. Refrigerate and stir again before serving.
