These healthy dehydrated Salt and Vinegar Squash Chips are a great alternative to potato chips. Perfect for gardeners!
These Salt and Vinegar Squash Chips are a healthy crunchy snack. They have a touch of olive oil, but not enough to make them greasy. I had to make a large batch because they were eaten up so quickly.
If you are a gardener, this is an excellent way to use up a bunch of squash. I am not a gardener, but I have heard that zucchini and yellow squash can take over a garden.
A dehydrator heats food at low temperatures, so it keeps more of the nutrients than an oven.
Slice yellow squash or zucchini on a mandoline ⅛" - ¼" thick.
Mix apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and salt. Mix with the sliced squash chips. Lay chips on a Teflon lined dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate for 12 hours at 110°.
Kept in an airtight container in the pantry, they'll last for a week. (I've had them last much longer, but they'll be the freshest at about a week).
- You can slice the squash chips ⅛" - ¼". I preferred the ⅛" chips over the thicker chips.
- Taste the apple cider vinegar mixture to check salt levels. (I over-salted on one occasion.)
- Dehydrate the squash at 110° to keep the nutrients.
- Serve with Vegan Ranch Dressing or your favorite dip.
