Servings: 6 people


  • 1 large Vidalia onion, chopped finely
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 6-8 bulbs wild garlic, light and green parts, ends trimmed and chopped finely
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup Cage-Free mayo
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp aged balsamic vinegar


  • Begin with chopping your onion. Add to a large skillet and sauté on medium low heat in the olive oil for about 45 minutes, until caramelized and sweet. Stir frequently to ensure the onions don't take on too much color.
  • After 45 minutes and once caramelized, add your wild garlic and regular garlic. Stir together for another 5 minutes over low heat.
  • Off the heat, add cream cheese. Allow to soften from the residual heat of the pan and stir together completely with the onions. This way, if you forget to pull the cream cheese out to soften, it will not matter. Put cream cheese and onion mixture into a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add mayo and sour cream. Stir together completely to combine. Add balsamic. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as wanted.
  • Cover tightly and refrigerate for 2-24 hours before serving with kettle chips.
