Fried Onion Strips with Dipping Sauce

I like these fried onion strips with dipping sauce more than I like regular ole onion rings. I think it’s because I can eat a lot of them and still feel like I didn’t eat that many. They’re dangerously addicting, with a light batter coating and the perfect dipping shape and size.

Fried Onion Strips with Dipping Sauce

The dipping sauce is equally fantastic with the fried onion strips, with a kick of cayenne and horseradish. As much as I do like horseradish, it can get a little overwhelming for me, so I cut the amount in half when I made a batch of the sauce and it still came out great.
