Servings: 4 people


  • 4 large russet potatoes or 6 medium ones
  • 1/2 cup of red wine vinegar or malt vinegar
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt plus more to taste
  • vegetable oil spray for the potatoes I like to use avocado oil but any vegetable oil spray will work. If you do not have a spray version of the oil, you can just toss the potatoes in a bowl with the oil.


  • 1/2 cup sour cream you can also use greek yogurt
  • 1/8 cup mayonaise
  • 1 tbsp za'atar seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees
  • Wash and dry your potatoes.
  • Now cut your potatoes in half length wise.
  • Flip the potatoes over so the flat side is facing down.
  • Cut the potato halves in half. Now cut those halves in half.
  • Each potato should yield 8 wedges.
  • Now place your potato wedges on to a large sheet pan making sure they do not overlap.
  • Spray generously with your vegetable oil. If you do not have spray oil, just toss your potato wedges in a bowl with some vegetable oil and then add to the sheet pan.
  • Sprinkle your salt over the potato wedges as evenly as possible.
  • Now place into your pre-heated oven and bake for about 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, flip the wedges over with a spatula to make sure both sides brown evenly.
  • Cook for another 15 minutes or until the wedges start to brown and you can easily pierce them with a fork.
  • Now, add you vinegar and another pinch of salt to a large bowl
  • Carefully scoop your hot potato wedges off the sheet and and place in the bowl with the vinegar.
  • Toss gently the potatoes gently in the vinegar making sure not to break them.
  • Do this until the potatoes have absorbed all the vinegar.
  • Remove fries to a serving dish and eat immediately and serve with more vinegar on the side.


  • Add all of the ingredients for the dip into a medium bowl.
  • Mix well and serve on the side with the fries.
