Lipton Onion Soup Vegetable Dip
The most important thing about this veggie dip is how flavorful it is. Considering there are only two ingredients, it is amazingly tasty and wonderful on raw veggies.
A vegetable tray with dip is appropriate at almost any event or function. It's the perfect appetizer for baby showers, birthday parties, barbecues, ladies luncheons or any other get-together you can think of.
Here is where I'm sharing a bit of a story. If you just want to get to the recipe, there is a "Jump to Recipe" just under the title, above.
This dip helped me get my first job!
It was actually my interview for the first real job I had after finishing University. I had researched and studied. I was ready for this interview. At the interview, I was asked the following.
"So, what would you bring to the party?"
Another easy question I thought. Not what I expected. But I knew this one. And I didn't hesitate.
"My veggie dip is to die for. Everyone loves it! And, of course, I bring veggies so that there is a nice healthy tasty alternative for people to snack on."
I got the job and a few weeks later, I realized what the question actually meant!
On to the easy and delicious vegetable dip. It's almost as easy as using salad dressing as a dip! But better.
1 (16 ounce) container of sour cream
1 package of Lipton's dry soup mix. (there are usually 2 packages per box - use one)
Open the sour cream and stir it so your sour cream is nice and creamy. No need to use a blender. This dip comes together in a matter of minutes.
Add the onion soup mix into the sour cream and mix well.
Put the lid on and put it into the fridge for a few hours to let the flavor mix into the sour cream.
Vegetables to serve on your veggie tray
After you place the dip into a small serving bowl, garnish the veggie dip with fresh herbs to make the dip look even more appetizing. The best fresh herbs to garnish are usually fresh parsley, dill weed or chives.
Serve with your favorite fresh raw vegetables. Make sure you have some colorful vegetables to make the veggie tray extra appetizing. Or perhaps you should just call it your crudites platter!
My preferred veggies include carrot sticks, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, some radishes (for the lovely red and white color), sliced cucumbers, scallions, and peppers. All on a nice platter that has room for the small bowl with the veggie dip.
And here is the moral of my job story. Sometimes, if you don't do the perfectly correct thing, you can still achieve your goal. You don't have to be perfect. You just have to be yourself and believe in yourself!

It's just as funny the second time I heard it!!! Your boss knew he was hiring an intelligent and UNIQUE gal! He made a good decision 🙂
Thanks Lori! I just can't remember how I came to tell you one of my worst job interview answers ever! If it made you laugh so much, I knew others would be amused too.
Oh Susan, What a funny story!! I have a almost equally funny story that just happened to me,I will share next time I see you. Thanks for all of the great blogs. I have so enjoyed reading them and making your so delish recipes. Happy 100th Blog!!
Thanks! We'll have to get together for lunch soon.
My favorite post to date!!! Keep up the good work Susan. I enjoy reading ALL of your posts! 🙂
Thank you Leanna! Love hearing from people I know that are reading what I write. I always wonder if you are getting to know me too well though! The good and the bad : ).
Thanks for the chuckle today! Sometimes just being who you are is the most important thing of all! Always be yourself, everyone else is taken!
Thanks for your comment Melissa! I guess the other moral of my story is you also have to be able to laugh at yourself. Mistakes happen and it's OK!
OMG that is such a funny story. I was reading it out loud to my husband and daughter Kali! And the best part is that you got the job in the end! Love it!
Thank you for sharing with your family! One of the reasons I shared this is for our teens. They are under so much pressure to be perfect. I just wanted to share that sometimes, if you really get it wrong, but you are sincere and are being true to yourself, it's OK! It still works out in the end.
