Cook potato chips & make salad
Peel and wash the potatoes and slice into 0.5 cm slices.  Lightly oil and salt and pepper the potatoes in a with a brush or in a mixing bowl. Place a single layer on the prepared baking tray. Place in the oven and cook for 25 minutes until golden and crisp. In a jar or small bowl add the remaining red wine vinegar and olive oil (one part vinegar to 3 parts olive oil).
