How To Make 3-Ingredient Easy Onion Dip Recipe

It takes just 10 minutes to make this easy onion dip recipe all you need are simple ingredients that you probably have at home.


The 3 ingredient onion dip is made of:

  • Sour Cream – Sour cream is a simple dairy product that is keto-friendly and healthy.
  • Cream Cheese – Cream Cheese is a fresh keto-friendly cheese.
  • Ranch Dressing – I use my homemade ranch dressing recipe for the best flavors but store-bought works as well if you’re in a rush.


Making this dip is the easiest recipe!

All you have to do is to combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl.

You can use an electric beater to make it easier to beat the cream cheese and make it fluffier.

If you don’t have a beater, you can use a fork or a potato masher.

Incorporate any of the optional ingredients to vary the flavors. You can place the dip into smaller ramekins and create different tastes for each.

Serving 3-Ingredient French Onion Dip

I recommend serving this easy onion dip with any of the following:

  • Fresh low-carb vegetables: such as cucumber, or celery.
  • Smoked Cauliflower or Buffalo Cauliflower.
  • Keto Tortilla Chips, Brussels Sprout Chips, or Keto Corn Chips.

Storage Instructions

You can store this dip for up to 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge.

I don’t recommend freezing it as sour cream tends to crystalize and loses its texture.
