If you are reading the title of this post and are a little confused, hang with us, you are going to LOVE this recipe! We love Greek food and wanted to create a version of all of our favorite flavors meshed into one dish. Even though this recipe is for french fries, it is incredibly healthy. Can we just call it a salad because it’s topped with vegetables? Yes, definitely. Right? This is a recipe for Greek salad that just happens to be served on top of crispy hot sweet potatoes instead of lettuce. We like it as an appetizer or a dinner side dish of grilled chicken kabobs, but respect you if you just dig in with a fork and call it dinner.
Loaded Greek Sweet Potato Fries
Makes: 4 servings as an appetizer or side dish
Prep Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 40 minutes
- 3 large sweet potatoes, washed well and patted dry
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 3/4 cup tzaziki sauce
- 1/2 cup roasted red peppers, dried with a paper towel and diced
- 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
- 1/2 cup cucumber, diced
- 1/3 cup kalamata olives, halved (not pictured because quarantine)
- 1/3 cup red onion, diced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut the sweet potatoes into fry-sized sticks. Lay the sweet potatoes on a cookie sheet and drizzle with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and give everything a good toss to coat. Lay the sweet potatoes in a single layer and bake for about 20 minutes, or until they are crispy on the outside and cooked through the center.
- When the potatoes have finished cooking, remove them from the cookie sheet and onto a serving platter. Top with the tzaziki in little plops around the fries, followed by the red peppers, feta, cucumber, olives and red onion. Serve immediately.
