Strictly speaking, dips aren't actually dessert material unless they're of the sweet variety, but for those who prefer savory bites, a dip can make a fantastic end-of-meal treat or a snack on its own with your favorite dippables, whether they be pita chips, crisps, pretzels or vegetables. I've always been a dip lover and have enjoyed dips my whole life, so I'll often take a good savory dip over a sweet one any day. Ranch and French onion are some of my all-time favorites, and both are so much better when made with fresh ingredients.
This recipe for French onion dip is a winner. The minced garlic gives it a real kick and the celery seeds and dry mustard make it so much yummier than any variety you'll buy at the store. That said, my all-time favorite ranch dip is the Cheesecake Factory's recipe. I don't know their recipe and while I've found a few recipes that taste an awful lot like it, I've never tasted anything that is an exact match.
