- 1 teaspoon sea salt

- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 2 garlic cloves, finely diced
- pinch sea salt
- 1 tablespoon finely sliced green onion tops or chives
Troubleshooting (My cheese won't melt!):
Pre-shredded cheese probably won't melt well on these fries, because it has added stabilizers.
Also, some extra-creamy smoked goudas have trouble melting (like the one I buy at Trader Joe's). This is likely because it's harder to shred it as finely. I still use this cheese when I have it on hand, because it's delicious even when not melted. Avoid trying to melt these extra-creamy cheeses under a broiler, because they tend to seize up and harden.
