Your favorite mayonnaise is turning 100! Hellmann’s and Best Foods mayonnaise isn’t just for sandwiches – did you know it can also be used to moisten chocolate cake and to add juiciness to a burger?!

Mario Batali has teamed up with Hellmann’s to create delicious summer recipes. Everything from main dishes, appetizers and desserts… all complimented with Hellmann’s Mayonnaise.

I decided I wanted to put one of the recipes to the test. Because a majority of us are vegetarians, I chose an appetizer… Creamy Onion Dip.

Creamy Onion Dip Recipe
  • 1 container (16 oz.) sour cream
  • ½ cup Hellmann´s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise Dressing (we used Hellmann's with Olive Oil)
  • 1 Package Lipton® Recipe Secrets Onion Recipe Soup & Dip Mix (we used Homemade Onion Soup Mix Recipe http://tinyurl.com/ohoj7wl)
  1. Combine all ingredients and chill. Serve with your favorite dipping items.


The recipe was quick and easy to whip up… which made hiding the ingredients from everyone easy. I chose to use the Olive Oil variety of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise and my Homemade Onion Soup Mix instead of the pre-packaged variety and mixed it all together with beaters.

Plated with our favorite veggies I served this to my crew. I couldn’t believe how creamy and rich it tasted. It was fabulous with veggies and if you’re feeling a little a naughty…. amazing with chips. The main response I got from the grown ups was that “This tastes better than store bought! What’s in it?”.  I say it tastes better and I love the simple ingredients!

  1. This sure looks like the perfect dip to bring along to a summer potluck or picnic.

  2. Onion dip is one of those things that says party to me. It was always a special treat in my house when I was a kid and this sounds like a great recipe.

  3. Bekah Kuczenski says

    Yummy! My daughter absoluetly loves dip of any sort, ill have to make this for her to dip her veggies in 🙂 It looks so simple to make!

  4. courtney b says

    mm looks great with the cucumbers 🙂 I thought I was the only one that liked onion dip with those!

  5. Lyn says

    I have several dips that I use Hellmann’s/Best Foods (name in the West) in and I agree, it does make them creamy and rich. No other brand seems to match up as well.

  6. marissa lee says

    wow this is really easy and quick to make…thank you for sharing.

  7. Sandy VanHoey says

    This looks great and I’ll bet much better than the store products I buy already made for the french onion dip. Need to try this one, thanks Heather

    I have had this awesome creamy onion dip recipe, but I have not used Hellmanns. Hellmanns makes the best mayo, and it tastes so good in recipes. I am going to make this recipe with this mayo next time.

    Sounds yummy! My mom used to make a similar dip that also included fresh diced onion (both yellow and green) and minced garlic. It was great with fresh veggies.

  12. Michelle F. says
