Zucchini Fritters with Chili Lime Yogurt

My summer class is finally over! Dave and I had a great time celebrating last night with some of our friends. We're excited to enjoy what the rest of the summer has to offer for us without thinking about school. As I mentioned a few days ago we're taking two trips out of Ohio in June -- I will hopefully have some great blog ideas from our travels for you in July.

This recipe is something that is good to use up all of that zucchini from your garden at the end of the summer. My parents always plant a huge garden for the summer and I love that I don't have to buy as much produce during those months since I cook so much.

Recipe from Family Feed Bag.

-vegetable oil for frying
-3 cups grated zucchini
-1 cup diced onion
-2 eggs
-1 cup all-purpose flour
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp chili powder
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp pepper

Chili Lime Yogurt
-1 cup Greek yogurt
-juice of half a lime
-1/2 tsp chili powder

To make the chili lime yogurt, mix all of the ingredients together.

Combine the zucchini, onion, and eggs in a large bowl.

Add flour, baking powder, 1/2 tsp of chili powder, salt, and pepper and stir to combine.

Heat oil in a skillet and fry heaping tablespoons of dough until golden brown on each side.

Drain on a paper towel.
Serve with the chili lime yogurt.

Dave and I both really enjoyed this recipe. The zucchini fritters had good flavor, but the chili lime yogurt was the star of this. The yogurt added both a coolness (from the yogurt), a tangy flavor (from the Greek yogurt) and a spice (from the chili) -- all of those went really well with the hot, slightly crunchy fritters.
