Shoestring Chicken Salad

I remember having this chicken salad with the shoestring potatoes at church functions when I was growing up and loved the added crunch of the shoestring potatoes.
This is really only good right away as the potatoes get soggy quickly, so only make enough for what will be used.

Shoestring Chicken Salad

1 c. chopped celery
1/4 c. chopped onions
1 c. grated carrots
3 c. cooked chicken, shredded or cubed
1/4 c. whipped cream
3/4 c. Miracle Whip
1 tsp. salt
2 cups shoestring potato chips

combine all ingredients except for the shoestring potato chips and mix well.
chill until ready to use.
mix in potato chips right before serving.
