This dip is not for the shi shi eaters out there. Beware - it requires intestinal fortitude. The simplicity is deceiving. It is not for the weak of constitution. This is my Grandma E's dip,and it's presence is absolutely required at all family functions. You will get bad breath. You will eat more than you should. You will have random cravings for it at inopportune times. You will find creative ways to slather it on whatever food you can find in your kitchen. It gets better with age, and comes out just a little different every time. —zest in the midwest
enough for a party
blocks of softened cream cheese (fat free is totally unacceptable here)
grated white onion
milk (not skim)
white vinegar (start with 4, and add to taste)
Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl, making sure you incorporate everything completely.Refrigerate for at least two hours (overnight is fine) before serving. Adjust seasonings to taste - I often add a splash more vinegar right before serving.
Serve with potato chips. We recommend plain Ruffles or a good BBQ kettle chip. If you are feeling masochistic, try this with Chili Cheese Fritos.
