Caribbean Lime Onion Rings With Spicy Dipping Sauce created by TasteTester

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.

    Both the onion rings and the sauce are very good. I think the sauce will make a good salad dressing also or as a dipping sauce for other deep fried vegetables. (I used it for the onion rings and zucchini coins.) I think I'll try the sauce as a dipper for unbattered radishes, a vegetable that is not one of my favorites. I have tried onion rings with a cornmeal batter and this batter. They are both good, but this one is tops. Thanks for the recipe.

    Great batter. I then tried a batch by adding breadcrumbs and a little less milk. I used priorly used frying oil which affected the taste so next time I will use fresh oil which I'm sure will make the difference. The wonderful thing is that the onion rings come out just like the picture. I didn't try the sauce but will do so next time.
