Garlic cloves – Peel them and chop them as finely as you can. If you can’t use garlic, replace with red onion or leave out.

Lemon zest -make sure you don’t use the white part as it’s bitter. I used a regular peeler to

Parsley – I used freshly chopped parsley.

Salt – I used sea salt flakes.

Greek yogurt – I used Farmers union branded Greek yogurt. Any Greek yogurt will work.

Olive oil – I used extra virgin olive oil. Vegetable oil will also work.

Potatoes – Use Yukon gold potatoes. They’re the best potatoes for baking French fries. Russet will also work but Yukon is best to use. Yukon potatoes may also be labeled as gold or yellow potatoes.

Sesame seeds – I used a mixture of black and white sesame seeds.

Feta cheese – I used Dodoni feta cheese. Any will do. If you want a creamier option use danish feta. Although that doesn’t crumbled as easily. I would just chop it up and mix it into the herb mix.
