I Love Dips!
You could say I am a huge dip gal. I seriously love dip and could rave about all of mine. Some of my dips are my most popular recipes on here. What I love about dips is that you do not have to eat them with chips. It is a great way to enjoy vegetables. A zero point veggie dip can really encourage you to eat more vegetables. I really enjoy this zero point onion dip with celery, carrots or sweet bell peppers. Speaking of that, a really fun idea that I do is to serve the dip in a bell pepper. It really emphases the veggie dip aspect. But, with that being said, a healthy French onion dip leaves room in your dip for some chips! Enjoy the dip as you see fit, there is no judgment here.
My aunt makes a French onion dip as an appetizer anytime I go to her houses, which, in this case, is luckily 1,100 miles away! Typically, for a classic French onion dip, you would use a sour cream and French onion mix. I thought, I love this so much, why not recreate it. If you are new here, that is what I do here. I love recreating a classic dish to make it healthier and better for you!
What You Need for this Weight Watchers Zero Point Onion Dip
All you need to do is grab two ingredients, I guess 3 if you like it extra salty, to make this dip.
- Plain non-fat greek yogurt
- French onion seasonings mix
Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
This is a fat free French onion dip recipe, therefore, we are going to use plain non-fat Greek yogurt. If you are not a Greek yogurt fan, do not worry. Honestly, I am not the biggest fan of Greek yogurt, or yogurt in general. You will not see me that often just grabbing a spoon and digging into a bowl of yogurt. So trust me, if you do not like yogurt, this recipe will be good! You will not taste the Greek yogurt.
However, if you really do not want to use plain non-fat Greek yogurt, you can substitute another yogurt, or use a classic sour cream. There are lighter and fat-free sour creams that would still keep this a healthy dish. I guess using fat-free sour cream would still leave this as a fat free French onion dip, right? However, I always do non-fat Greek yogurt since you really do not taste it. I do, however, would suggest that you try out different brands of yogurts until you find one you love. No two Greek yogurts are the same.
French Onion Seasonings Mix
Now, this is important so pay attention. We will be using French onion dip and seasonings mix. Did you catch that, French onion dip and seasonings mix. This is not a soup recipe, leave the soup mixes at home. Zero point onion dip calls for dip mix. You can use a soup mix if you really want to, most are also dip mixes. But, I find those to be chunkier, not as easy to eat as a dip. Onion dip and seasonings mix and very ground up, perfect for a dip.
It can be a little difficult to find in stores. You will not find this in the soup aisle with the soup mixes. This, at least in my local grocery store, is found in the condiments aisle. You know, where the ketchup and what not is. In my store, it is found on the top shelf, above the salad dressings. It is similar to a Ranch seasonings packet, and is found next to it.
Speaking of Ranch seasonings packet, if you want to make a similar healthy recipe, grab that Ranch and make my healthy homemade Ranch dip! A pretty similar recipe to this and is also great as a Weight Watchers zero point veggie dip.
There are a lot of varieties of onion dip mix that you can buy; however, I grabbed this one. This one is my favorite. It is also gluten free, if that is a concern for you.
Want to Make You Own Dip Mix
While I go the easy and lazy route for this zero point onion dip with the mix packets, you can make your own.
To create your own French onion dip mix, combine the following ingredients:
- Dried minced onion (1 tablespoon)
- Dried parsley (1 tablespoon)
- Onion powder (1 teaspoon)
- Salt (¼ teaspoon)
- Garlic powder (⅛ teaspoon)
In addition, add some diced chives for extra onion flavor! But, it is not necessary.
You will notice that I add more salt into this recipe. I love salt, don't yell at me, let my arteries do that for me. You can add more salt, if you like it salt-y; however, you can certainly leave the extra salt out.
How to Make Weight Watchers Zero Point Onion Dip
All you have to do is combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and store them in the fridge for a couple minutes, at least 30 usually, to allow the flavors to form together. It is important to store it in the fridge as it allows all the flavors to come together and the yogurt to tense up a little. But, you know I am sampling this a ton before it goes into that fridge! I like my onion dip pretty onion-y, but, you can mess with the ratio to get it to your liking.
This dip is great to double, triple or even quadruple! If making this for a crowd, which I usually do, I will just mix the entire package with 2 cups of yogurt.
What To Serve with Zero Point Onion Dip
I love a classic crinkle chip with this dip. However, it is really good with vegetables such as carrots, bell peppers or celery.
Leftovers are great in an air tight container, stored in the fridge. Be mindful of when the yogurt was opened as yogurt is typically good for about 5 days from opening. If using a fresh container of yogurt, the dip should be good for about 5 days from making. If using an older container of yogurt, remember when you opened it, as that will start the five day countdown.
As mentioned, this dip is best if stored in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This is a great dip to make in advance. You can make this dip the day before, or in the morning.
For leftover onion dip mix, use it in burgers, in meatballs, or cover some chicken tenderloins in it and air fry! Onion dip mix makes some amazing recipes besides just onion dip.
