There's no need to buy pre-packaged apple chips when the real thing is so easy to make at home. We love the sweet and tangy dip with plain apple chips, but you can also serve with apple chips coated in your favorite spice blend--like Apple Chips with Ancho Chile Cinnamon Sugar or Chinese Five Spiced Apple Chips. If you don't have a mandoline, you can use a sharp knife, but your slices won't be quite as even.
3 Gala apples
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 225°.
Stand 1 apple upright. Slice ¼-inch vertically off right and left sides of apple. Set a mandoline or slicer for cutting 1/16-inch thick slices. Place 1 apple, cut-side down, on mandoline. Cut slices until the apple core is exposed. Turn apple over, cut slices from the remaining side until core is exposed. Repeat with remaining 2 apples.
Arrange slices in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 225° for 1 hour 45 minutes, or until edges curl and the chips are golden and crisp. Pull parchment with apple chips onto cooling racks and cool completely, about 20 minutes. The chips will crisp more as they cool.
Stir together yogurt and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Serve with apple chips.
