Vegetable Fritters Salad
 Second vegetarian dish is up! Vegetable Fritters Salad was fun to make. I’ve had lot’s of fritters but had yet to make them myself.

 It’s a little work but its totally worth it. The goal to fritters besides great taste, is to make sure it gets crispy and avoid it becoming soggy. In order for it to stay crispy, you have to make sure you remove as much water from the zucchini and sweet potato, and it aint easy.

Before I get into how to remove the water, let’s talk #mealprep. Sadly, this dish is NOT meal prep friendly. Even by removing all the water in the vegetables, it won’t make it any better. The reason it’s not meal prep friendly: vegetables hold moisture no matter what. With that being said, by the next day or two, it will definitely be soggy city. These are supposed to be fried and crispy, not mushy. But hey, if you don’t mind it, more power to you. In conclusion, prep this no more than one day ahead, and preferably consume the same day if possible. Sorry guys, I tried to find a ways to make it last longer but the texture and flavor just won’t be up to par.
