More About This Recipe
  • Avocado Fries are the ultimate snack. When I was a kid, there was a teensy little concrete restaurant down the road from our home. The windows were always adorned with handwritten weekly specials, there was a buzzer that dinged when you walked inside, and a single booth in which to eat. It was pretty small town America. We’d ride our bikes down to buy a snowcone or burger. But, when the restaurant started offering fried vegetables, my mom (the original health nut of all time) actually started dragging us down there for what she called, “totally irresistible” fried mushrooms and zucchini. Those snacks didn’t much fit into mom’s perpetual diet, and this one probably wouldn’t either. But, inspired by those fried veggies of yesteryear, I took the kitchen to pull together a batch of incredibly sublime Avocado Fries. As if a golden brown, crispy coating isn’t enough to make you swoon for a month, I paired our fries with a Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dip that so beautifully complements the creamy warmth of the fries with a kick of zingy flavor. Enjoy!
