DEAR SOS: My husband and I had lunch at the Princeville Resort Hotel in Hawaii and loved the "poke appetizer." Could you obtain the recipe? We'd love to try it at home. SUSAN PHILLIPS Valley Village DEAR SUSAN: So easy to make, and the Princeville people were happy you asked. Poke (poh-kay) is the traditional Hawaiian ceviche, using ahi tuna and rock salt to "cure" the raw fish. Fish prepared in this manner should be fresh and free of any odor.

A recent Cornell University report revealed that potatoes could be lethal. Storing potatoes at high temperatures encourages toxins to flourish, putting a whole population of noshers at risk. I prefer peace of mind with my potatoes, so it's good to know that green signals the presence of toxins. No color means the spud is safe, and a healthful source of vitamins A and C, complex carbohydrates, fiber and flavor.

It seems as if everyone has a recipe for "the best" corn bread. And that's just great because I'm not going to give you yet another one. But the next time you bake that incredible corn bread of yours, make a little extra for this salad. The yellow of the corn bread, the red of the tomatoes and the bright green of the cilantro make this salad not only tasty but very pretty too. So get baking.
