Or just because it’s a random Friday night.

Or even a Tuesday.

We love this stuff and when Vidalia onions are in season, I make it as often as I can.

Seriously. It’s that good.

Full of scrumptious Vidalia onions, two cheeses – cheddar and Parmesan, and some mayonnaise, it really is one of the easiest recipes. But then again, most delicious Southern recipes are like that. Take a few simple ingredients and use them in a basic preparation that really lets them shine.

Just look at that cheesy goodness.


Vidalia onions are currently at the prime for the season. You can generally find them in the grocery stores or farmer’s markets this time of year. (At least in the South you can). Be sure to pick up as many as you can and use my Grandmother’s method for how to keep onions so you can use them all throughout the summer and on into the fall.

Being a Georgia girl, you know we keep plenty of those sweet Vidalia onions on hand for any number of recipes!

If by chance you are in an area where you are unable to purchase Vidalia onions, use the sweetest onions you can possibly find.

Here’s the recipe for this classic Vidalia Onion Dip.

    I didn’t think it was going to be fantastic but it was FANTASTIC!!! So simple and just perfect! We did it as a side dish for kabobs just to change things up a bit. Thank you for a recipe that will be handled down for generations!

  2. I, too had this recipe deleted. I do follow you and if we are not supposed to pin your recipes, maybe the pinterest button needs to be removed. hank you.

    1. Hi Theresa,
      Thanks for letting me know about the pin issue. As I mentioned to Jennifer in the previous comment, the issue was not your pin, yet all pins with that image were removed by Pinterest.

  3. Robyn, Pinterest just sent me a notice that they deleted my pin of this recipe due to a copyright complaint… do you not want us pinning your recipes? Just wondering, as I’m sure I’ve pinned many from your site.

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      There was a pin that had the entire recipe and a portion of my post copied and pasted into the description of the pin and on into the comments until the whole post was copied and pasted into Pinterest. It wasn’t your pin at all, but Pinterest told me the only way to have my post removed from the pin was to have all the related pins removed. I hate that it sent you that message!

    Sweet Vidalia Onions and those Sweet Georgia Peaches…just two great things we get from Georgia! I know…peaches have nothing to do with this recipe. Love the dip recipe and your Grandmother’s method for storing them. You know I’m pinning it!

  5. Have this in my oven right now… I only used one onion b/c it was HUGE, it seemed like enough and I added a touch of garlic salt…. can’t wait to taste this…

    I made this for lunch yesterday, served with homemade crostini, and it was delicious. My son made me promise to keep the recipe, and I shall! Thanks, Robyn.
