A delicious poolside snack - or a great accompaniment for a barbecue. These tangy onion rings are delicious served with the spicy lime dip. I have also used low-fat mayonnaise, in an attempt to lighten the calories!

  1. Peel onion and cut into 1/4-inch slices, separating rings.
  2. In a medium-size bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, lime zest, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cayenne pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the egg and buttermilk and stir. Add the flour mixture, and whisk until blended.
  4. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a heavy fry pan until temperature reaches 375°F.
  5. Dip onion rings into batter and carefully put into hot oil. Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes, turning after one minute. Remove with fork and place on paper towels to absorb oil. Serve with Lime Dipping Sauce.
