There are some party traditions so venerated they seem timeless. One of them is bringing out a Creamy Onion Dip, which always draws a crowd over to dip in their favorite chips, crackers, and vegetables. The other tradition is finding the same bowl of Creamy Onion Dip completely empty before the party ends. It's that perfect blend of savory, creamy, and cheesy that makes people keep coming back for more until the dish is clean. You could even say it's the flavor of any great party!
