Aperitif dip with caramelised onions and blackcurrant liqueur

To spice up your aperitifs, we suggest a recipe for Dip with caramelised onions and Crème de Cassis.

A light and easy sauce recipe to accompany the aperitif.

The crème de Cassis caramelises the onion while adding colour and flavour. As for the sweet and sour side, it is balanced by the slightly vinegary but above all crunchy gherkins, while the freshness is provided by the yoghurt and chives. Finally, for a slightly spicier note, garlic is the perfect ingredient to complete this recipe! ☺️

If you are looking for an original recipe that is a change from the traditional Tzatzíki or Houmous, this recipe is for you!


Briottet - Cassis
Blackcurrant liqueur Briottet
5 cl
  • Onion
  • Chives
    3 sprigs
  • Greek yoghurt
  • Mayonnaise
    1 teaspoon

While the onions are cooking, chop your spring onions or chives and the gherkins. Then squeeze the garlic.

In a bowl, add all the ingredients and mix. Taste and season to taste.

The dip is ready! This light sauce is perfect with tortillas, breadsticks or raw vegetables. Carrots, cauliflower or mushrooms are perfect for this recipe.
