Where did French Onion Dip come from?

The origins of this simple appetizer are unknown, but it is speculated that the recipe originated in San Francisco during WWII, when soldiers were brought bags of onions by the US government to help farmers. They started adding it to sour cream and mayonnaise to make a quick dip for their crackers.
