Who doesn’t love to plant themselves on the couch with a platter of dips and dishes to scarf down while watching a show? I know I love this entertaining activity and something we always need on the table is a french onion dip. It is a necessity to have a french onion dip on any platter because it is the perfect balance of salty and savory to pair with chips or vegetables.
