Creamy Onion And Garlic Dip

This is a homemade version of the shop bought classic – you can omit the garlic or use red onion or shallots for a sweeter taste. If you can, make a day in advance so that the flavours have time to meld together. 


  • 125g free range, organic mayonnaise 
  • 120g sour cream 
  • Half a small onion – use red or white or a single shallot, finely chopped 
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed or very finely chopped
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • selection of crunchy raw vegetables, to serve


  1. If you own a mini chopper, place the onion, garlic, parsley and lemon juice in, and blitz well. Otherwise, chop everything finely. 
  2. Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, and mix well and season to taste. 
  3. Spoon into a serving bowl and serve with sticks of raw veg for dipping. Can be stored covered and chilled for up to five days.
