  • 1/3

    cup onion, minced

  • 4

    scallions, just the green parts, diced

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 1/4

    cup fresh dill, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried dill

  • 1

    cup feta cheese, crumbled

  • 1

    cup baby spinach, chopped

  • coarse salt and fresh ground black pepper

  • 4

    tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • vegetable oil, for frying

  • Tzatziki: (or sour cream), for serving

  • 1/2

    small cucumber, shredded

  • 3/4

    cup sour cream

  • 1/2

Directions

Grate the potatoes on the large holes of a box grater. Add them to the center of a clean kitchen towel and wring out over the sink to remove as much moisture from the potatoes as you can. Transfer to a large bowl and add the onion, scallions, eggs, dill, feta, spinach, 1 teaspoon coarse salt, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Sprinkle the flour over top and mix well with a fork or your hands. Heat 1/2 inch vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees F. or add a small spoon of the latke mix to the oil to test - it should sizzle and bubble immediately. Working in batches, scoop heaping tablespoons of the potatoes into the pan for each latke and flatten with a spatula. Fry until golden brown and cooked through about 2 - 3 minutes per side. Make the tzatziki, if using, while the latkes are frying. Drain on paper towels. (Maintain the oil at 350 degrees F between batches.) Serve with tzatziki or sour cream. Tzatziki: Wring the water out of the cucumber the same way you did the potatoes in a clean kitchen towel over the sink. Add to a small bowl and mix in the sour cream and dill. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
