Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Wine

This is a delicious caramelized onion dip with Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon and Woodbridge Wine ‘Cue Sauce — it’s cooked into the base of the dip and blended with cheese, fresh scallions, and served with pita chips.

Ingredients

For the onions:

  • 2  Tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • large yellow onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  cayenne
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/2  Cup  Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 1/2  Cup  Woodbridge Wine ‘Cue Sauce
  • 2  Tablespoons  red wine vinegar

For the dip:

  • 3  Ounces  cream cheese
  • 1  Cup  sour cream
  • Onion mixture
  • scallions, thinly sliced, green parts only
  • 16  baby carrots, peeled, for serving
  • Pita chips, for serving

Directions

For the onions:

In a medium sauté pan, melt the butter and add the onions, garlic and cayenne. Season with salt and cook over medium heat, stirring from time to time, until translucent, about 8-10 minutes. Add the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon and cook until almost all of the liquid evaporates, 8-10 minutes. Add the Woodbridge Wine ‘Cue Sauce and red wine vinegar and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes over medium to low heat until the onions are golden brown and tender. Set aside to cool.

 

For the dip:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Stir in the onion mixture and scallions. Taste for seasoning. Allow the dip about 15 minutes to “rest” before serving with carrots and pita chips on the side.

Caramel Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Caramel Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
