Courgette fries with Chili aioli

Recently, I happened to have courgettes in the fridge for other purposes but the cravings for fries were too much and decided to do something about it.  I went for an alternative to normal potato fries, a bit healthier, less fat and more importantly improved flavour to compensate for the lack of it not being

Blue Cheese Dip

I looooove cheese, just adore it. Quite strange given in Colombia you don’t find many different types of cheese easily and the standard is usually very fresh cheese.
