AtV Favorite: French Onion Dip

Happy New Year!
There's no hiding from the fact that December 2010 was out of control busy for me, and from what I've been reading a lot of you in the blogosphere can relate to this. With all of my best intentions aside, I didn't get to post as many recipes as I hoped. On the upside, I do have a lot of new food to consider this month's recipes a belated Christmas present. And cheers to the exciting new year that lies ahead!
Raw Vegan French Onion Dip
Step 1. Before-hand Prep
Make a batch of AtV Sour Cream (you will need to use half of 1 batch)
Step 2. Making your Dip
*** In a medium mixing bowl combine: 
1 & 1/2 cups AtV Sour Cream 
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Date Paste
Pinch of Sea Salt & Pepper 
Mix evenly and set aside
*** In a small mixing bowl combine the following dry ingredients:
2 Tbsp Minced Dried Onion (you can find this in the spice section of your grocery store, and possibly the bulk spice section as well)
2 Tbsp Onion Powder
3/4 tsp Garlic Granules
Additional Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Using a fork, mix together your dry ingredients evenly.
Slowly add your dry ingredients into your Sour Cream. Once you've mixed your dip let it chill in the fridge for about an hour - this will let the flavor of the Onion develop.
This dip is simply dreamy. I just don't know what else to write. If you're an Onion Dip Fanatic like I am, then give it a try! I've been making batches of this to keep in my fridge because it's so good, and you can enjoy it in so many different ways. My adorable sister ate this while visiting from the East Coast and said: "How Did you make this without using MSG? It's seriously (explicit) addictive!"
That translates to success in my book.
