The fried zucchini served in restaurants so often suffers from being both greasy and mushy that it isn't something we had ever considered making. But this recipe in the July issue of Olive magazine changed our opinion.

Yes, these are still deep fried and they are still oily. But whereas the versions we were previously accustomed to consisted of thick disks or sticks, these are cut into slender strips. Zucchini "French fries" may be nothing new to some of you, but for us it was a revelation! Light, crispy, and delicious with a squeeze of lemon or dipped in curry ketchup.
