Heat a large non –stick skillet over medium heat.  Swirl in the oil, and then add the onion.  Cover and cook stirring occasionally until softened about 5 minutes.  Reduce the heat to medium-low, uncover and cook, stirring frequently until onion is very soft and golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.  Spoon the onion onto a plate.  Add the water to a skillet and crumble the bouillon cube, stirring until the cube dissolves.  Let the onion and broth stand until cool about 20 minutes.
  2. Stir together the onion, broth, yogurt, mayo, lemon juice, and salt in medium bowl.  Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours or up to 3 days
