Crispy crinkle cut french fries mixed with a variety of herbs, thin sliced red onions, and a tangy mustard vinaigrette take fries to a whole new level!
We eat a lot of french fries in this house. It's just one of those things that we have in a side dish when there is nothing else to have. For years I made my own and they are definitely the best but with a toddler in the house I just don't have time for that every day.
Since we got an AirFryer a year and a half ago we make all of our fries in there. It takes about half the time and they are perfectly cooked every time. My son loves fries so it's a quick side dish for him when he doesn't like what we are having.
While my husband and I really enjoy fries sometimes they get boring. Our variety is basically crinkle cut, shoestring, hand cut, or waffle fries. They all taste similar and we dip them in ketchup. It was time for a change.
- Crinkle Cut fries
- olive oil
- sea salt
- black pepper
- red onion
- Dijon mustard
- fresh chives
French Fries with mustard vinaigrette just looked good. A bowl of crinkle cut fries mixed with thinly sliced red onions and tons of herbs. It sounded like my kind of side dish.
The vinaigrette that goes on top is really easy to make too. It's just white vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and chives. You can also add dill which would be really tasty but I didn't have any on hand so I just skipped it.
After the fries are crispy and golden brown you simply toss them with the onions, mustard vinaigrette, and some fresh herbs. I was afraid this would make them soggy but as long as you make them crisp to begin with there's no worry to them getting too soggy.
My husband and I both loved these fries. They were tangy and herby and had a bite to them from the Dijon mustard. The red onions soaked up the vinegar mixture and turned almost pickled which was a fresh addition to the fries.
I will be making these again in the near future. They are a welcome change from plain old fries and are easy to make. I'm pretty sure they would be great with grilled burgers or at a cook out.
