Lipton’s onion soup mix—and its use in making dip—holds a special place in my heart, next to Aunt Jemima’s phony maple syrup and Jif peanut butter, in the section devoted to processed foods that remind me of childhood. And while nostalgia isn’t required to enjoy the house-made onion dip, sweetened by caramelized onions and accented with thyme, at Wallingford’s new bar, Union Saloon, it certainly helps.

The pile of salty, shatteringly crisp chips that accompany the dip are just the thing to complement a drink or two; try owner Michelle Magidow’s (former dining room manager at Delancey) citrusy, shaken old fashioned.
