<b>Author Notes:</b> If you don't have any of these spices, or if you don't want to use them, skip them.

Charred Corn and Avocado Salad with Lime, Chili, and Tomato Recipe on Food52

<b>Author Notes:</b> This is a simple and delicious summertime salad to have up your sleeve.

Barbecue Sides: German Potato Salad

Barbecue sides can be as much of an art as slow smoking meat itself.

I know the meat is the main …
