Having a great go-to appetizer in your culinary repertoire is a lot like having the perfect little black dress or a pair of shoes that go with everything in your closet; they just make life easier. Chef Kevin Johnson of The Grocery in Charleston, South Carolina has created your new go-to appetizer, a Charred Onion Dip. Perfect for tailgating, cocktail parties, or a light pot luck dish, this dip pairs the sweetness of caramelized onions with the acidity of sherry vinegar, and creaminess of sour cream and buttermilk. The combination is utterly addictive. Whip up a batch for your next soirée, tailgate or movie night. It is your new go-to after all.
