I love the Lipton Onion Recipe Soup & Dip Mix because it always speeds up the process for making my soups and dips. This mix is great in french onion soup and has just the right amount of saltiness in it. However, for the dip mix it is a little too salty so I'd recommend toning the saltiness down in some way, either by adding more sour cream or adding fresh onions to the mix. The mix is cheap and I like how it has multiple packages in a package so I'm not running out to the store every time I need one. I use the Lipton Onion Recipe Soup & Dip Mix about once a week, and while it does have the onion taste to it, my kids who hate onions, love this mix for dip! It's a great mix that cuts your time, but not the taste!
