Recipe from Southern Living

We "ruffled" these chips using a crinkle cutter, available for about $8 at kitchen or homes stores or online. For smooth slices, use a chef's knife.

Ingredients

  • 2 yellow squash
  • 2 zucchini
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  1. Cut yellow squash and zucchini into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Combine squash, zucchini, cold water, and salt in a large bowl. Cover and chill 30 minutes; drain and pat dry with paper towels. Serve with your favorite dip as an alternative to potato chips.
