Eighth night of Hanukkah and I’m burnt out as well as deep-fried.  Craving something light and fresh with clean flavor.  The “everything” blend adds a bit of crunchy toastiness and a lot of well-seasoned taste.  The Yogurt  sauce adds a bit of refreshing creamy tartness.  The fresh green dill adds herby-ness, and horseradish gives it some distinctive pungency.  Really a flavorful and healthful dish.  Couldn’t resist ending on an Artichoke Latkefritto note, also tastes great with the Horseradish Dill Sauce.
