Dear SOS: Many years ago, a Japanese restaurant in Gardena (which has since closed) made a very tasty flank-steak dish called negimaki (beef with onions). It was thin slices of flank steak rolled around green onions with a tempura-style sauce. I have not been able to find it anywhere else, and my Japanese friends can't find it in their cookbooks. Sally Friedfeld Rancho Palos Verdes Dear Sally: Timing is everything.

Warszawa is a wonderfully homey little restaurant that has been quietly serving amazingly sophisticated Polish food in Santa Monica for more than three decades. It may be most famous for its roast duck and pirogi (and its terrific collection of Polish vodkas), but this borscht is simply unbelievable. The layering of flavors — sweet beets, fresh dill, green onions, tangy buttermilk — makes it one of the best any of us has ever tasted. Warszawa's cold borscht Total time: About 1 hour, plus cooling time for the beets Servings: 4 Note: Adapted from Warszawa in Santa Monica Our recipes, your kitchen: If you try any of the L.A. Times Test Kitchen recipes from this week's Food section, please share it with us: Click here to upload pictures of the finished dish.

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.
