      3/4   c            Plus 2 tb beer (not dark)
    1       c            All-purpose flour
      3/4   c            Finely chopped fresh parsley
      3/4   ts           Salt plus additional for
                         -sprinkling rings
    1       lg           Onion
                         Vegetable oil for deep-fry
                         Salsa Verde for dipping
                         -(optional)
 
   In a bowl, whisk beer into flour until batter is
   smooth and whisk in parsley. Let batter stand 30
   minutes and stir in 3/4 ts salt.
   
   Cut onion crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices and
   separate slices into rings.
   
   In a large, deep skillet, heat 1 inch oil to 380 deg
   F. Working in batches of 4 or 5 onion rings, drag
   rings through batter to coat completely, letting
   excess drip off, and fry, turning, until golden, about
   1 to 2 minutes. With tongs, transfer rings as fried to
   paper towels to drain and season with additional salt.
   
   Serve onion rings with Salsa Verde.
