For dinner, a warm salad of potatoes dressed with a zesty mixture of lemon, whole-grain mustard, olive oil and fresh dill and garnished with pieces of Norway sardines is a welcome change of pace. Select a large platter, and make an attractive arrangement of the warm potato salad, strips of green pepper and red onion, slices of seedless cucumber, and sprigs of fresh dill. Garnish with chunks of silvery sardines swished in the zesty mustard dressing, which is also used to moisten the warm potato salad.

Q. I think I make a good basic potato salad, but everybody's a critic. I hear, "I like the tang of vinegar instead of the smudge of mayonnaise," or "I make mine with a mustard-based vinaigrette. " I'm looking for a couple of new recipes that will quiet my know-it-all friends. - Jennifer M. A. Jennifer, welcome to my world. Of course the first thing that comes to my mind is, "My, you look good in mayonnaise-smudged clothes. " But I know we're too civilized to go that far. I can't believe people would come to your house, eat your potato salad, and then criticize your food.

Medford police are looking for an apparently hungry burglar who broke into a Medford exterminating company and stole a pint of potato salad. The thief then cut himself on a jagged piece of glass while leaving. Police said the burglary at Hudson's Exterminators in the 500 block of Stokes Road occurred between 5:15 p.m. Thursday and 6:48 a.m. yesterday. Investigators said someone first tried to kick in a locked door, then tore off a screen, broke the window and climbed through. The only item police or employees could find missing was a one-pint container of potato salad.

Summertime is here, and everyone wants the living to be easy. When it comes to warm-weather cooking, easy can be a lighter menu and less time spent in a hot kitchen. For the health-conscious cook, new soy-based foods help expand outdoor cooking beyond steaks on the grill. Head to the grill for a meatless barbecue outing, where the star will be Grilled Tempeh Kebabs accompanied by a potato salad alternative I call Creamy Herbed Potato Chill. Tempeh, a hearty soy food originating in traditional Indonesian cuisine, is fiber-rich and a generous source of calcium, B Vitamins and iron.

The dish that started as a mix of fresh greens has evolved into almost any food served cold with dressing. And it doesn't even have to be cold. Lately, the possibilities for salads have gone off the charts. Between ethnic diversity and the wealth of ingredients now at hand year-round, the dictionary definition of salad as an "incongruous mixture" couldn't be more apropos. Consider some of the seeming incongruities in salads noticed of late on menus and in cookbooks.

Potatoes tend to go without notice, hiding behind a veil of cream, living within the shadow of a leek, barely visible through a smoke screen of country ham. Potatoes keep their down-to-earth roots even as they rise to culinary heights, so we tend to think of them in afterthought, as the sidekick to a steak or the filler in corned-beef hash. But the deficiency is ours, not the spud's, for there is no other food that moves from dish to dish and meal to meal with such flawless grace.

Lower Merion police have lowered the boom on Bobby Rydell, the onetime teen idol whose 1969 Bentley wreaked a bit of havoc in Narberth last month. Rydell, 67, was charged with driving under the influence after tests determined his blood-alcohol level was more than double the legal limit when his car jumped a curb and swiped a decorative pole, shrubbery, and a landscape wall outside a yoga salon on Montgomery Avenue. No one was injured. Rydell told 6ABC the day after the accident that he had had a "couple of drinks at lunch.

Dear Polly: What is the difference between regular all-purpose flour and unbleached all-purpose flour? - Sandra Dear Sandra: Regular all-purpose flour has been bleached white with a chemical process. Unbleached all-purpose flour, which is also white (although it may have a very faint yellowish cast) has been bleached naturally by aging - no chemicals. Although the bleaching agents used in chemically processed flour may not be harmful, I see no reason to consume added chemicals when the unbleached flour is just as good to use. I recommend unbleached all-purpose flour for your ordinary baking needs.

The sign on 49th Street near Woodland Avenue made me stop the car and turn around. "Hot and delicious soul food. Hazel's secret recipes," it said. It was lunchtime, and the ladies of Evangel Temple Church had just finished setting up tables weighed down with Hazel's chicken (fried, baked or barbecued), ribs, meatloaf, greens, potato salad, macaroni and cheese and spaghetti with meat sauce. Hazel was inside, overseeing the candied yams still in the oven. On Sundays, she and her husband, Rev. Alfonzer Patrick, oversee the church's flock.

WHAT IT IS - Long before superhighways like the Atlantic City Expressway and the Garden State Parkway, when drivers heading to the Jersey Shore had to take slower, less-direct roads that wound through farm fields and small towns, Delsea Drive (Route 47) was a favorite route. So named because it runs between the vicinity of the DELaware River in Brooklawn, Camden County, to the edge of the SEA in Wildwood, Cape May County, Delsea Drive also afforded those Shore-bound drivers a few places to stop for refueling and stocking up on food to take to the beach.

IT WAS the day after Thanksgiving, and the leftovers cried out from the fridge. These weren't ordinary leftovers, either. No, these were the leftovers of the gods, prepared by my mother, my aunt and my wife, LaVeta. These were the foods of my childhood, and they included every unhealthy dish that made the movie "Soul Food" a staple for DVD bootleggers. But I wasn't planning to live my food fantasy through some grainy reproduction of the Vanessa Williams classic. No, I would eat my soul food in person, but I knew I wouldn't have much time.

The outdoor grilling/picnic season is in full swing. If you covet your free time as I do, you cook enough for 10 when only eight are coming to dinner. You're counting on leftovers. You say leftovers is an ugly word? Get over it. Leftovers can make a great lunch, especially if you want to squeeze sunshine time into the workday. So grill an extra chicken half or beef steak, pork chop, or vegetables, perhaps zucchini or red pepper wedges. Make a little extra German potato salad, bacon-studded baked beans, or chilled marinated vegetables.

TENDING TO your soul is right up there with satisfying your tastebuds. One thing I enjoy about visiting certain churches is the post-service repast: Trays of macaroni and cheese, old-fashioned potato salad, string beans that have been boiled all day and gallons of sweet tea. Oh, and don't forget dessert - coconut cake, sweet-potato pie or maybe a slice of homemade pound cake. Just thinking about it makes me wish it were Sunday and I was standing in line holding a paper plate piled high.

For years, Cindy Lopez's mother filled her dessert empanadas with pineapple or pumpkin, but when Cindy met outfielder Ben Francisco, her mother switched to filling the empanadas with his favorite: sweet potatoes. The couple married just a few weeks ago, on Nov. 20, and the recipe for Mama Lopez's Sweet Potato Empanadas is among the 25 dishes in a new charity cookbook. From Our Home to Yours: A Collection of Phillies Recipes is a project of the Phillies Wives group and Phillies Charities Inc.
