Remember Onion Dip from an envelope? Time to replace that memory with something that really tastes like onion!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Yield: about 1 cup spread
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 Tablespoons minced onion
2 cloves crushed garlic
2-3 tablespoons minced chives
1 cup whipped cream cheese
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Heat the oil in a small skillet or saucepan, and saute the onion for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for another 2 minutes, or until onion is soft and translucent. Stir in the chives, cream cheese, Parmesan, and salt to taste.
This spread can be served immediately (it will be warm), or chilled and served later, when your spread is thicker.
