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.

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.

In Madras Turkey with New Delhi Rice, meaty turkey drumsticks are simmered until tender, then the meat is stripped from the bones and added to a creamy curry sauce. The assertive flavor of curry powder, a mixture of turmeric, cumin, coriander and cayenne pepper, works wonderfully with the subtly flavored turkey. Serve with a cardamom-scented rice sweetened with currants. MADRAS TURKEY WITH NEW DELHI RICE 3 pounds turkey drumsticks 2 green apples, peeled and chopped 2 stalks celery, chopped 1 onion, sliced 2 tablespoons butter or margarine 3 tablespoons curry powder 1 cup chicken broth 1 cup whipping cream or half and half Salt, pepper 3 green onions, chopped New Delhi Rice Poach turkey in enough water to cover, 1 1/2 hours or until tender.

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.
