This is a very simple dip that gets rave reviews at holiday gatherings but is right at home any time of year. Try it with your favorite snack crackers or use as a sandwich spread. Toss in different herbs or add sliced jalapeño or serrano peppers before charring the onions for a kick of heat (rings of poblano are a nice non-spicy option). Play around and let the seasonal bounty inspire you!
