"The vegetables are light and delicious. Frequently, we skip the aioli; the vegetables are flavorful and yummy on their own."

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 lemon -- zested and juiced
  • 1 tablespooon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  • 1 clove garlic -- finely minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon driied mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
  • =====
  • 12 cups extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil -- enough to fill your fryer
  • =====Vegetables=====
  • 1 cup sugar snaps
  • 1 cup green beans -- stemmed
  • 8 green onions -- roots and dark green parts removed
  • 1/2 head cauliflower flowerets
  • 1 zucchini -- cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1 yellow squash -- cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 2 bell peppers -- seeded cored and cut into strips
  • 3 lemons -- very thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups cornstarch

  • fleur de sel


  • Make the aioli: combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and set aside or chill before serving.
  • Prepare your vegetables as directed in the ingredient list.
  • Heat the oven to 250∫F.
  • In a deep fryer, heat 12 cups canola oil (or the amount required by your fryer) to 375∫F. Using a strainer over a shallow plate or pie plate, sprinkle cornstarch over the vegetables in batches. Toss to coat. Remove to a baking sheet, shaking off excess cornstarch. Keep each type of vegetable separate from the others; you will be frying and presenting them separately on a platter.
  • Drop the vegetables in batches into the hot oil and cook until brown and crispy (1 to 3 minutes). Remove to a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Place the baking sheet in the oven to keep the vegetables hot while you finish frying the rest.
  • Arrange on a platter, keeping each type of vegetable separate. Sprinkle with salt and serve with aioli.
