M SL THE PALM BEACH POST THURSDAY, MARCH 26, 1998 3FN Texas caviar easy to prepare, but start early Hints from Heloise and water and dry thoroughly. No more contaminating germs! Leslie Norris, Covington, La. A good sanitizing solution is 3 tablespoons household bleach to 1 gallon of water. Leave it on the surface for about 2 minutes, then rinse and dry. Note: Be sure to clearly label the bottle. Heloise Dear Heloise: At a brunch recently, I served three kinds of cream cheese: no-fat, Vi-fat and regular. In order to identify them, I cut the label from each package and placed it on the corresponding bar of cream cheese. My guests were delighted and so was I. Esther Bernstein, Jamesburg, N.J. Write to Heloise in care of The Palm Beach Post, P.O. Box 24700, West Palm Beach, Fla. Dear Heloise: We use a lot of peanut butter. When the jar contents get low, I substitute a fresh jar. Then in a day or two, when the newer one has space, I take a narrow spatula and clean out the original and add the contents to the jar currently in use. This saves waste and messy efforts on the part of the users in a hurry. Margaret Leininger, Ashland, Ohio Dear Heloise: My kitchen counter space is limited. Therefore, I use the same surface area to prepare most of the meals I cook. After handling raw chicken and other meats, which can carry harmful bacteria, I use an old cleaned-out spray bottle filled with bleach and water. I keep it handy under the kitchen sink. I spray the surface with solution and wipe with a paper towel. Then I proceed to clean with soap Dear Heloise: I really love your Texas caviar recipe. Could you please reprint it? Vivian Rightmeyer, Churchville, N.Y. This spicy concoction is a great appetizer served as a dip with tortilla chips or crackers. All you have to do is mix the following ingredients together and marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

The air is sweet, the cloudless sky is big and blue, and the magnolia trees are in full bloom. Intimations of spring make me want to rid my kitchen of winter food. No more acorn squash, pink grapefruit or steamed broccoli on my menus. Today, I want to cook with fresh dill, juicy red onions, creamy red-skinned potatoes and crisp green asparagus. We'll have salmon topped with a vinaigrette of red onion and dill and asparagus with fresh lemon juice for dinner. And for dessert, we'll have strawberries drizzled with honey. For this spring menu, I'll poach the salmon steaks in a broth of white wine, water, onion, garlic, fresh dill and coarse salt. The salmon will cook quickly in the hot broth; therefore, I will simmer the broth ingredients first to develop the flavors. While the broth is simmering, I'll make the red onion and dill vinaigrette, cook the potatoes and prepare the asparagus. Trim the stems of the asparagus by bending and letting them break naturally at the most tender part. If the asparagus are medium to fat, peel about 2 inches up from the bottom, using just 2 or 3 swipes with a potato peeler. But if they are pencil thin, peeling won't be necessary. Make sure to soak the asparagus in warm water for about 10 minutes. The warm water will loosen the sand that might be hiding in the tips or under the scales on the stalks. Then refresh by soaking in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes. The red onion and dill vinaigrette is a simple mixture of finely diced red onion, fresh dill, jalapeno, vinegar and sugar. More like a salsa than a salad dressing, it is excellent on the salmon. But it is also good served over chilled asparagus or a sliced tomato salad, and as relish on a sandwich. Serve the strawberries simply sliced and drizzled with a little honey. Just for fun, look in the specialty food section of your mar 18 oz.
