Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Maker's Mark (R) Bourbon or Maker's 46 (TM), plus 1 tablespoon
  • 4 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large sweet onions/Vidalias, peeled, halved, sliced thinly with the grain
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Few drops lemon juice
  • Pinch sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Crudite vegetables and chips for dipping

Directions

In a wide heavy-bottomed pot, heat the olive oil over high heat. Add the sliced onions and the teaspoon of salt. Saute the onions, stirring often until they begin to soften, 5 to 6 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and continue to stir and cook the onions until they begin to color, about another 15 minutes. Add 1/2 cup Maker's Mark to the pan and stir in. Reduce the heat to low and cook the onions for another 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions have colored and caramelized. Remove the onions from the pan and spread on a plate or baking sheet to cool in the fridge. 

Using a food processor or blender, combine the ricotta, yogurt and remaining 1 tablespoon Maker's Mark, and process until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Fold in the sour cream. Once the onions have cooled, rough chop them briefly. Fold into the mixture and season to taste with lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper. Serve the dip cold with crudites and chips.
