By knowing how to make chips! You can use your oven or a dehydrator to make delicious and nutritious chips that will be an easy and favorite family snack.

Then you can toss the slices into whatever seasonings you have chosen for your chips. A dash of salt will also help dry the cucumber slices even further by drawing out moisture.
