  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Slice the onions into thin half moons. 
  3. Step 3

    Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan on medium high heat. Add the sliced onions and 1 teaspoon of salt. Saute on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally for 25 to 35 minutes or until the onions are deeply caramelized. They will be so soft that they can easily be mashed with the back of a fork. 
  4. Step 4

    Remove the onions from the pan and allow them to cool. Place the sour cream and mayonnaise into a large bowl. Whisk them together along with the garlic powder, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and ground black pepper. Whisk until thoroughly combined. 
  5. Step 5

    Add in the minced shallots, chopped chives, and reserved caramelized onions. Whisk until combined and the chopped ingredients are evenly dispersed throughout the dip. 
  6. Step 6

    Serve with potato chips or crudité immediately or cover it with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
