With all the surplus zucchini at this time of year, this can be a side dish or an appetizer for that summer get together. I have had people enjoy these that are not zucchini fans!

These zucchini chips are soft inside with a crunchy outside. It's a very savory side dish. Since these are baked, not fried, and lightly seasoned, you taste the sweetness of the zucchini. We love the salty taste from the Parmesan cheese. This is a great summertime side dish. But, they'd make a nice snack too.
