What do you like on your fries?

The post below about coated or uncoated french fries below got me to wondering, what do you like on yours? In the town we lived in northern NY state, close to Montreal vinegar was often offered with fries and we like that plain, cider or best malt. Once in awhile i like mayo and for catsup the Canadian brand Brooks is hard to beat. So what do you like?

  1. Mayo or malt vinegar but if they are really good, I just eat them plain, usually with a lot of salt.

    1. 99.9% of the time, just sea salt.

      Sometimes a mixture of mayo and dijon mustard with lots of black pepper but I try not to do that too frequently.

      Unless they are terrible, then I might use ketchup, but they'd have to be unbelievably terrible (then I might not even bother eating them).

      1. Ranch Dressing!!! Yummmmmmmmmy!!!!!

        1. Salt usually. Occaionally mayo if it's homemade and especially if it's been adulterated with harissa. And if the fries are thin, crisp and piping hot, nothing beats a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

            try sort of a remoullade, tangy version.. or maybe a wasabi-mayo spread.. all this just for variety... of course, not beats a good, hot, very crisp, salty, touch of garlic french fry..

          2. Crumbled feta, oregano, pepper and a little olive oil and vinegar....
