C2 WEDNESDAY, MAY 20, 1998 FOOD THE SALINA JOURNAL T POTATO SALAD New potatoes keep jackets in salads Little spuds pair with peas and mustard in one summer side dish By JOYCE ROSENCRANS Scripps Howard News Service New red potatoes are in season, and these little spuds are absolutely the best for potato salads. A novel way to purchase new potatoes is packaged in clear plastic boxes; Green Giant is one brand. They may be more expensive than petite potatoes piled high and bought in bulk, but the boxes protect the tender potato peel. You want to leave the peel intact for both of these springtime potato salads. The first dish pairs edible-pod peas (snow peas or sugar snaps) with the waxy texture of new potatoes. Fresh dill in a reduced-fat creamy dressing is irresistible; prepared mustard makes the salad tangy, not bland. The unusual recipe for grilled potatoes tossed in an olive-oil dressing is made crunchy with lots of whole mustard seeds. It's a radical change from mayonnaise potato salads.

That's plunge as in the way olestra passes through the body unabsorbed and thus provides no calories. But that good news for those watching their fat and calories is also bad news for some digestive systems. Each package must contain the warning: "Olestra may cause abdominal cramping and loose stools" (which is brilliant dual marketing on Procter & Gamble's part, when you consider that that company makes olestra and Depends). What's even more of a concern is the package statement that "Olestra inhibits the absorption of some vitamins and other nutrients." While olestra, also known t?y the trade name Olean, passes through your body, it takes the good antioxidant fat-soluble vita- fnins along with it. : Frito-Lay has attempted to compensate for this problem by adding back some of the vitamins, but the many healthful carotenoids are still among the missing. Eat these chips and you'll also miss out on the benefits of any fat-soluble vitamins in the healthy foods you might eat along with these. Carolyn: Any self-described junk foodie whose job sometimes fequires her to eat tofu and fat- free cheese must display a certain amount of dedication, commitment and sacrifice. But the current national rollout of these new OJean-containing Wow! Chips is the first occasion of food-testing that doubled as a test of courage. One Center for Science in the Public Interest survey says about CARPETS PROFESSIONALLY STEAM CLEANED • Carpets, Furniture & Drapery Cleaned on location Fire &: Water Restoration 24 Hour Emergency Service "The standard of American homes for generations" (785) 826-9229 • 1-888-513-2538 ti ^ l-t jg Since 19*8 Scotchgard VISA/MC/AmEx Discover 2 percent of the population will experience diarrhea or some other similar problem anytime they eat Wow! Chips. In exchange for taking this risk, Wow! Chips promise fat-free snacking with "all the taste" of regular chips. In terms of taste, the Wow! chips lean more toward full-fat. The barbecue disguise on the BBQ Lay's Wow! makes them taste even better. The Doritos Wow! Tortilla chips are delicious, though not quite as crisp as the regular kind. The Ruffles Wow! could use more salt. As for my gastrointestinal report, I didn't experience any problems. But I also didn't eat more than 10 chips at a time.
