These simple pita chips go well with many kinds of dips.

• 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sea salt, dill and black pepper in an old spice jar with a shaker lid; set aside.

2. Arrange pita wedges on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush top of each wedge with olive oil. Sprinkle spice mixture evenly over wedges.

3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until nicely toasted but not hard.
