French Fry salad? I thought I'd print the recipe for those who missed this heart attack on a plate "healthy" salad they made on the Today Show this morning.

Cut the potatoes into french fries as long as the potato and about a 1/2-inch in diameter. Blanch these fries in 250° Canola oil until cooked through but not browned. About 8-10 minutes. Reserve.
Add the salad greens, tomatoes, sliced onions and parmesan cheese into salad bowl. Deep fry the reserved fries in 325° Canola oil until golden brown and very crispy. Season with salt and pepper and add to the salad along with red wine vinaigrette. Toss lightly and plate. Drizzle each salad with some of the dijon dressing.
Nothing says healthy like a salad with TWO dressings and french fries. I'd bet that a burger paired with some fries would be about the same amount of calories and a whole lot more satisfying.
Salad diet anyone?
