Some people have a big sweet tooth, but I crave salty snacks (umm, hi there, popcorn addiction). I’m completely helpless around a bowl (or…a container) of french onion dip and a bag of salty, greasy, potato chips. I can’t keep these things in my house because I have no self-control around them.

When multiple people requested that I create a homemade onion soup mix recipe and this homemade french onion dip, I knew I had to get right on it! Well, truthfully it took me months (sorry for making you wait, Allison!).

I knew that I’d make it healthier than the stuff you buy at the store…as I tend to do! My go-to is always my dill vegetable dip made with yogurt, but this homemade french onion dip is quickly becoming a new favorite. The problem is, I still want to eat a ton of chips with it. But it’s healthier…so it’s all good…right? Right?

The base is mostly plain Greek yogurt, but I also like to add in some mayo to smooth out the flavors and reduce the tanginess of the dip. The only other thing in the dip besides the yogurt and the mayonnaise is a couple of tablespoons of my homemade onion soup mix. It takes only about five minutes to make…but it’s best if you let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours to let the flavors meld together.

FAQ About Homemade French Onion Dip:

How Long Is Homemade French Onion Dip Good For?

This homemade french onion dip will keep in your fridge in a sealed container for about the same amount of time as your yogurt. When you’re making this, check the date on your yogurt and use that as a guide for when to toss this out as well.

Can I Make this French Onion Dip Without Mayo?

You can absolutely make this french onion dip without mayonnaise! I like the way it smooths and mellows out the flavor, but you can definitely use all yogurt instead of the mix of yogurt and mayonnaise that I used in this recipe.

Can I use more Caramelized Onions?

You can definitely add more caramelized onions to the mixture and stir them into this dip. They’ll add so much amazing flavor! I don’t think there’s such as too many caramelized onions, am I right? They’re absolutely irresistible!

Total Time: 5 minutes

Homemade french onion dip is made with greek yogurt and homemade seasoning for a healthy version of this dip that disappears quickly every time!


  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (see note)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (I like the kind made with olive oil)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons homemade onion soup mix
  • Optional: chopped caramelized onions for garnish


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, and homemade onion soup mix. Stir to combine.
  2. Cover and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours prior to serving. Top with chopped caramelized onions if desired.
  3. Serve with chips, vegetables, or anything you'd like! (It makes a delicious sandwich spread, too!)


  • I like to use 2% Greek yogurt in this recipe. Full-fat and fat free will also work. If you choose fat free, it might separate and be a little more thin than if you use full-fat. Just give it a stir before serving!
  • If you're looking for an easy, hands-off way to caramelize onions, try these slow cooker caramelized onions!

Verdict: I’m so obsessed with this dip, you guys. It’s my new favorite recipe and I just know you’re going to love it as much as I do.
Husband’s take: Ben never touches French Onion Dip at parties…I always assumed it was because he didn’t like it, but nope! He just has better willpower than I do. He likes it but stays away from it because it’s not the healthiest. So, somewhat to my surprise, he loved this! Maybe just as much as I did!
Changes I would make: None at all!
Difficulty: So easy!

  1. This was very good!  Need to try next time with the caramelized onions and will try 2% yogurt as I went too healthy with fat free

  2. The ads on these food blogs are getting ridiculous. I understand people want to make money but you’re actively driving people away from your website. Having to exit out of 3 ads and a video before I can actually see the post and having to endure a moving ad after every teeny tiny paragraph is incredibly irritating. I hope you enjoy the money you made from this view because it’s the last bit you’ll get out of me!

    Also, caramelized onions on a french onion dip? Yuck.

    • I’m guessing “andno@___.com” is not truly your email address, so I’m not sure you’ll see my response, but here it is anyways.

      I’m also guessing you didn’t try this dip with caramelized onions on top (correct me if I am wrong!). And while I’m in the camp that caramelized onions are good on just about anything (including this dip!), you may or may not have noticed that they are listed as an optional ingredient. Which means it’s optional to add them. Truthfully, any part of a recipe is optional…you don’t need my permission to make a recipe as you see fit, but this garnish in particular was added as a fun optional bonus for those who love caramelized onions like I do!

      Regarding ads…this site is completely free for the user. If you’d like an ad-free option, I can suggest some great cookbooks! This site, however, is not even close to free for me to run. In fact, it costs thousands of dollars each month, not including all of the time I put into it. So yes, I do run ads to offset some of those costs, as well as to help provide for my family, as this is my career.

      None of my ads do, or should, block the content. If you would be willing to tell me what kind of device and browser you were using when you experienced that, I’d be happy to look into it. I’m always open to kind, constructive feedback about this site. I love to hear from my readers and often do reader surveys for input as well.

      And for the record, your particular view probably earned me about $.00001. So, I’m sorry to see you go, but if I have to choose between someone bringing negativity into my day and that fraction of a cent, it’s not difficult.

  3. Thank you so much for the recipe. I also made your Homemade Onion Soup Mix. Together they make the best dip.
