Caribbean Lime Onion Rings With Spicy Dipping Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by French Tart

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!

This was great! Really really easy to make and it has great flavor. But you don't need all that batter. Next time I'll make less. The sauce was delicious and I plan on using it as a salad dressing as well.

  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.
