Salt and Vinegar Zucchini Chips

Salt and Vinegar Zucchini Chips are very low in calories and are low carb too!

The key to making a real good chip out of zucchini is all in how you slice it. Use a mandolin or food processor to get the slices as thin as possible. Toss with my other ingredients and you won’t believe how good these are!

Note: You can make this recipe in the oven if you don’t have a dehydrator. See instructions below.
