Happy 4th of July, chefs! We’re celebrating under the fireworks with the classic flavors of a barbecue-style dry rub. A warming, herbaceous and subtly sweet mix of seasonings, the spice blend coats and deliciously infuses the salmon fillets, charring slightly in the hot pan for added, smoky depth. On the side, we’re serving a red, white and blue potato salad. The patriotic hues of these heirloom spuds are the product of antioxidants bearing subtly fruity notes, which perfectly complement the tangy dressing.

Peel and mince the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Thinly slice the celery. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Peel and mince the shallot to get 2 tablespoons of minced shallot (you may have extra); place in a small bowl with the juice of all 4 lemon wedges.

Once cool, drain thoroughly and pat dry with paper towels.
