1 tablespoons butter
1 Vidalia onion, halved and sliced into
1/4-inch strips
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cups sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon regular or vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
chives or green onions for garnish

1. In a large sauté pan, heat the butter over medium high heat and sauté the onion for about 30 minutes. When the onions begin to caramelize and are golden brown, add the garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

2. Allow the onion mixture to cool and then take the mixture to a cutting board and give the onions a good chop.

3. Stir the caramelized diced onions into the sour cream, mayonnaise, celery salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Season well with salt and pepper to taste. Chill 1 hour or overnight. Garnish with green onions or minced chives.
