Celery Boats with Caramelized Onion Dip
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1.25lb. Dandy® Celery Sticks bag
  • 1 large onion, sliced into 1/8-inch rings
  • 8oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper


  1. Heat a large saute pan over medium heat, add the oil, and heat until shimmering. Once hot, add the onion rings. Saute over medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently. Continue to stir and cook until onion rings are soft and golden brown in color; remove from heat. Set aside to cool. 
  2. In the meantime, add the cream cheese to a medium bowl. Stir in the soy sauce, smoked paprika, and black pepper. Set aside.
  3. The onion rings should be cool enough to handle and chopped to a fine dice. Add the caramelized onions to the cream cheese mixture and stir to combine. 
  4. To fill the celery, use a knife and spread across the celery canal, leaving 1/2-inch room at the thicker end for easy pick up.  
  5. The leftover dip can be refrigerated in an airtight container for about a week.
