Notes

Why do I mix the salad right before serving?
Mixing the salad right before serving will prevent the chips from getting soggy.
Can I use sour cream instead of mayo?
Yes of course you can, but in the original recipe mayo is used.
Where can I get a a julienne board slicer?
There are different varieties of julienne slicers. I haven’t came across of the same one that I have because I got mine from Ukraine. But there are plenty of substitutions you can use that will give you the same shredded appearance. 
What kind of bowl do I use for this salad?
You will need a circular/round bowl that is slightly deep inside. Using this kind of bowl will be easier to mix the salad and it will prevent the salad from falling out.
Can I eat the salad the next day?
Yes you can eat the salad the next day, but your chips will contain the moisture from all the vegetables. So if you want the crisp and crunchiness of the chips, you can add it into the salad.
Can I use a different tomato than Roma?
Yes, you can use any tomato of your choice.
