Answer:

You want to make a solution of #"potassium iodide...."#?

Explanation:

#KI# is quite soluble in water, to the tune of #140*g# of salt per #100*mL# of water........

So pours your water onto the salt, and let it rip......

The addition of potassium iodide to a water slurry of iodine can bring the iodine up into solution as #KI_3#,

#I^(-) + I_2(s) stackrel(H_2O)rarrI_3^-#
