Melt the butter in a skillet set over medium heat. Place the diced onions into the melted butter, stirring to coat. Cook the onions for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions soften and begin to look translucent in appearance.
Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the garlic to the onions and season with salt and white pepper. Continue to cook and stir the onions until they begin to take on a pale yellow “caramelized” hue; about 5 minutes more. Stir in the reduced sodium soy sauce to coat all of the caramelized onions. Cook for a few more seconds or until all of the soy sauce is entirely absorbed by the onions. The onions should have reduced to about 1 cup in volume. Transfer the onions to a glass or ceramic bowl to cool until just slightly warm.
Once cooled, fold ¾ of a cup of the caramelized onions into the plain Greek yogurt until combined. Reserve the remaining caramelized onions for serving. Cover the bowl of dip with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled through; about 1 hour.
Once chilled, transfer the dip to a serving bowl and garnish with reserved caramelized onions. Serve Skinny French Onion Dip with freshly cut vegetables, pretzel crisps, bread sticks, pita chips, or potato chips.
