Let’s leap through saying that this platter of highway cart fries is taking notes from Greek salad and loaded nachos and late-night chili cheese fries and making all of it come collectively in a glad and delicious second for fry lovers everywhere.
To me, those exact highway cart fries imply candy potato fries (or regular! your choice, pal) topped with recent summery romaine, marinated tomatoes and chickpeas, feta cheese, herbs to the nines, a fast thrown collectively tzatziki, and fried pita strips simply due to the fact the crown jewel on top, all coming collectively in a single epic bowl-meets-boat-type meatless dinner situation. You might also upload kalamata olives and/or pepperoncini, and also you are going to be, oh I dunno, THE BEST PERSON EVER, and I would understand that we’re destined to be meals BFFs.
I first stuck the imaginative and prescient for those whilst I ate at my newest lunch obsession hot spot: Spitz. The quantity of instances Jenna and I even have ordered the wraps to be added to the studio for lunch may just be very incriminating and shall now not be made public. So let’s simply say I even have ordered this (street cart fries and all its variations) sufficient to understand that I had to at the very least TRY to make this occur at home.
First order of trade was seeing how tough it can be to make gyro-style meat at home, simply due to the fact YUM. That meat is so good.
Second order of trade was realizing that making gyro-style meat at dwelling was method too complex for my common lady self. So I settled on an both delicious meatless model of my favourite salad/fries combo from Spitz referred to as the Street Cart Fries. And yes, I stay the type of life the place “Street Cart Fries” are totally authorised as a salad. Whatcha gon do bout it.
Third order of trade was realizing the vital foods I had to recreate this wonder.
And they are, so as of importance:
Sweet Potato Fries. Worth noting that we also adore common non-sweet-potato fries. This is u-pick moment.
Tzatziki. Necessary, simply due to the fact it’s type of the chili cheese sauce in our chili cheese fries analogy. Without it, there’s no saucy factor at the fries to cling all of it together. It’s fast to whip up and it’s delicious past all belief. HIGHLY RECOMMEND dipping a few fried pitas on this stuff earlier than you even contact the salad/fries creation.
Fried Pita. Friends, that isn’t really crucial within the method the tzatziki is necessary, and it does require a bit bit additional time, so should you’re tight for time, take a cross this time. But should you’re now not tight for time and also you like OMG-type-food, you then want – I repeat – NEED – fried pita strips atop your fries. I don’t lie about those vital things.
And guess what? The relaxation is form of a buffet of options.
Marinated tomatoes and chickpeas and feta cheese and pepperonicini and additional herbs are type of what I most suggest simply due to the fact the last layering touches, but it’s your call. She is a blank-slate-meal type of girl. You make it your very own highway fries masterpiece, okay? I totally anticipate to be tagged on your incredible fry shots on Insta.
