Netta's NICHE- French Fry Salad

The name slips my mind.
It was a small restaurant on a main street of a fairly small town.
We were newly weds and would eat at that little place once in a while.
They served it there.
All these years later, a version of that dish sometimes shows up on my
 weekly menus.   The little restaurant called it STEAK SALAD!

If you know me well, you know that ANYTHING with STEAK on it
if gunna be on the top of my list!  mmmm
So salad with steak... awesome.

BUT... the real zinger here is what was served around the edges
of that giant steak salad.... FRENCH FRIES!

Today we don't have steak in our salad too often, but we do
have salads for lunch. No one gets excited about that.
BUT... if it's salad with FRENCH FRIES on the top...
well, that's reason for a jumping for joy!

Here's the ridiculously easy way to make those Joy-inducing fries:



The thinner you cut them the quicker they cook.



Usually I toss'um in Oil, salt & garlic powder.
Today I used a bit of leftover pasta sauce, oil & seasoning salt.
Turned out pretty good.
(Plain oil version is our fav)





Spread on baking sheet. Cook at 425 degrees
for approx. 30-45 min. Turn once.
(If you want them crispier, turn on the
broiler for a couple minutes. DO NOT
walk away!  They'll burn in seconds!...
not that I've ever done that or anything.
hee hee)























Serve on top of a tossed green salad.

(Our family uses Ranch, Bleu Cheese or
Thousand Island Dressing on it.)

Mmmm

That's the way I always make my fries. I toss in olive oil. Never tried it on salads. Thanks for the idea. And I make sweet potato fries the same way. Ok. Now I'm hungry.
