  • 1

    cup All-Purpose Flour

  • 2-3

    Eggs (whisked)

  • 2

    Cups Panko Bread Crumbs

    cup Mayonnaise

    cup Sour Cream

  • ¼

    cup Buttermilk

    tablespoons Lemon Juice

  • 1

    tablespoon Freshly Chopped Parsley

  • 1

    tablespoon Freshly Chopped Chives

  • 1-2

    teaspoon Celery Salt (to taste)

  • Freshly Cracked Black Pepper

Directions

Cut the ends off the Zucchini and discard. Slice in half crosswise then cut lengthwise into strips to resemble a medium-thick french fry. Place the Flour in a shallow dish or bowl and season with Salt and Pepper. Place the whisked Eggs in a shallow dish. Combine the Panko and Paprika in a third dish, season with Salt and Pepper and whisk. Working in batches, dredge the Zucchini in the Flour, shaking off excess. Coat in Egg then cover in the breadcrumb mixture. Place the covered Zucchini stick on a wire rack, making sure not to overlap. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and crispy. Meanwhile, whisk together the dip ingredients and season to taste. Serve warm Zucchini with dipping sauce. Helpful Tips: 1. These fries are baked, so are lower in calories than a fried alternative. 2. Place covered zucchini stick on a wire rack, making sure not to over lap. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden & crispy. 3. The dipping sauce makes a great salad dressing as well!
