Serve them as an appetizer before a barbecue, as a side to delicious burgers, or even on top of a juicy steak. It's important for your onions to be sweet, since the right onion will really improve the taste of the onion rings. You can slice them as thick or as thin as you'd like; it's all about personal preference. The same rule goes for the cup of beer the recipes calls for. Just use your preferred brew! These beer-battered onion rings are so tasty that you'll have to make sure to set enough aside for yourself before you let your guests try them, or they'll be gone before you know it.Mango and Avocado SaladA mango and avocado salad on a warm day brings to mind beaches, tropical breezes, and ocean sunsets--all just in your own backyard! We love the hot weather flavors of mangoes, peppers, and cilantro combined with healthy yet delicious avocados. Make sure your avocados are ripe yet firm; you want to be able to stir them into the salad without mushing them! Feel free to subtract the jalapeno if hot peppers aren't quite your style, though we love the unexpected kick it adds. Mango and avocado salad is a great weekend appetizer or easy weekday side dish. Mango and Avocado Salad recipe upgrade tip: Mango and Avocado Salad is also delicious served as a chunky salsa with tortilla chips. Simply slice the mangoes and avocados into smaller chunks.Fried Rice and VegetablesUse up all your leftovers and make a delicious weeknight meal with fried rice and vegetables. Substitute carrots, celery, or whatever you have on hand for the mushrooms. If you'd like to add a protein, then look for chicken, shrimp, pork, or even tofu! If you make a big vat of long grain rice on Sunday, this becomes a meal that's easy to whip up on any busy weeknight with the contents of your refrigerator. Just keep eggs, garlic powder, and soy sauce on hand for a tasty, filling dinner of fried rice and vegetables.
