Powers Gourmet To Go in San Jose/Saratoga? 1980s-1990s

lindseyebeth | May 22, 201806:50 AM

Extremely long time lurker, first time poster here looking for some help! There was once a small deli/catering establishment called Powers Gourmet To Go on Prospect and Lawrence Expressway in Westgate West, near the Posh Bagel. My family used Powers often for catering and other meals - they had the BEST Chinese (?) chicken salad with noodles and an extremely delicious dressing. Powers closed in the mid 90s, and the owner, Barbara Power, sold the dressing for a while in local store(s) (I only remember it being sold at Gene’s, R.I.P.). My mom and I reminisce about this dressing too often and I would love to find the recipe. Does anyone remember Powers, or even better does anyone possibly KNOW Barbara Power (I think she may live near the Central Coast now if my googling is correct?), and if so can I please please get the hook up on the dressing recipe. It would provide a lot of closure for my mom and me on this food memory. Thank you!!!!!
