How do I make Loaded Greek Salad Fries?

They are SO easy. Using my simple baked fries recipe, you’ll cut Russet potatoes into fries and toss them with olive oil and Mediterranean seasonings.

Then you’ll bake them on a parchment lined baking sheet til they’re golden brown and crispy in the oven and load them up with classic Greek salad toppings and homemade tzatziki.

The Greek salad portion is a simple mix of sliced cucumber, tomato and red onion tossed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar with crumbled feta cheese and fresh dill. 

And the real star here is the homemade tzatziki! Sour cream, fresh dill, lemon zest and lemon juice combine to make the most delicious, finger-licking good dipping sauce you’ve ever tasted!

Why should I use russet potatoes? 

Russet potatoes are the best for french fries. They hold their shape well, get nice and crispy and stay soft and tender on the inside.

Yukon gold potatoes are great too, but it’s hard to get them as crisp without over cooking them.

Baby red potatoes are good if you’re feeling more of a wedge shape. You can follow the same directions as below, just cut the baby red potatoes into wedges instead of fries!

Are you sure I don’t need to peel my potatoes?

Yes – no peeling required! I rarely peel a vegetable unless absolutely necessary. If I can save myself 5 minutes and a dirty dish, I’m in!

In this case, it’s really not a must to peel your taters. A majority of your fries will end up (mostly) without skin any way.

And I like the rustic look and added texture with the skin is left on. It also adds more fiber! So save yourself the time and hassle of peeling and just enjoy a rustic baked fry!
