Loaded Mediterranean Street Cart Fries


I saw this recipe online and thought it looked like a fun weekend recipe to make. There are a lot of options as far as toppings, so you can customize it however you'd like. Having never been to the Mediterranean (and none of our local Mediterranean restaurants seem to serve a similar dish) I can't speak to the authenticity of the street cart fries. Even with no base comparison, these were good nevertheless, I think next time I would like to add hot sauce as a topping. A little spice would have put these over the top for me.

Recipe from Pinch of Yum

Ingredients:
Tzatziki
-1 cup plain full fat yogurt
-half of a zucchini, grated
-½ cup roughly chopped fresh parsley
-1 clove garlic, minced
-a few pinches of chopped fresh dill
-salt and lemon juice to taste

Marinated Tomatoes and Chickpeas
-1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
-4-6 tomatoes, diced
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-1 clove garlic, minced
-fresh minced parsley to taste
-salt to taste
-lemon juice to taste

Other Ingredients
-1 bag sweet potato fries
-1 head romaine lettuce, washed and roughly chopped
-Optional toppings: feta cheese, pepperoncini, olives, hot peppers, hot sauce, and/or fried pita chips

Start baking the sweet potato fries according to package directions and while they are baking make the tzatziki and marinated tomatoes and chickpeas.

For the tzatziki, you will combine all of the ingredients together and then adjust the seasoning and lemon to taste. For the marinated tomatoes and chickpeas, toss the chickpeas and tomatoes with the oil, garlic, lemon juice, and parsley. Set aside to marinate. During the remaining time chop the lettuce and prepare any of the optional toppings that you plan on using (we just used feta). 

For assembly you can either assemble each serving individually or just make a big plate of Mediterranean Street Fries.
