FOOD FUN: Want Fries On Your Salad?

The Idaho Potato Commission develops many delicious potato recipes, incorporating trending food flavors into conventional preparations (harissa, sriracha), as well as new concepts like this one:

French fries as a salad garnish.

“The crisp flavors of a Greek salad harmonize effortlessly with seasoned fries, while a cool, tangy tzatziki sauce extends the Mediterranean theme,” they say.

The fries themselves are more Greek than “French”: They’re seasoned with Greek spices.

For a bit of food fun, here’s the recipe.
