My grocery store makes a spinach dip that I absolutely love!  If I am going to continue to eat it, I must cut the fat.  The ingredients are listed on the container and I believe I can accomplish this.  However, one of the ingredients is “beau monde.”  I don’t have a clue what that is.  Can you help me?

    Beau Monde (beautiful world): salt, dextrose, onion, celery salt. 🙂

    I have checked several stores in my area and cannot find Beau Monde. WalMart, TOPS, Wegmans or any other store within a large area around my home. It is not convenient for me to go into Rochester or Buffalo to locate a vender that carries Spice Island products. One manager told me it did not move off the shelve fast enough due to the price being much higher than store brands or other popular brands,. I am looking for quality and will no doubt have to order on line. Inconvenient to say the least.

    Amazon has it. I had to buy the Beau Monde from there also. For some reason, the stores don’t carry it anymore it seems. When I couldn’t get it at all, I just substituted 1/4 tsp celery salt and 1Tbsp toasted (lightly browned under the broiler)onion flakes. I usually add more dill to taste, than the recipe calls for, regardless…Enjoy!
