Normally, I like to think I'm not terribly susceptible to the power of suggestion when it comes to foods, advertising, product placement, etc. I picked up some chow chow a few weeks ago, trying to avoid the dyes, preservatives, etc. in the ingredients in all the relish jars I was seeing. I saw a label on the jar of chow chow, "great in potato salad." Hmmm -- interesting!
Turns out, it really is delicious in potato salad. In fact, I think it's my new favorite potato salad to date. I mixed mayo with the chow chow, a little garlic powder and onion powder, salt and pepper. Then, I chopped peppers and green onions, and folded it all together with the cubed potatoes and dressing.
Suggestion planted >> chow chow consumed. It worked on me.
