Chili Rubbed Pork with Corn Salsa

San Francisco summers aren’t usually super hot or sunny, but we can still celebrate summer with seasonal recipes! The following would be great on a hot summer night, by the barbecue with an ice cold lemonade. But we’ll just enjoy it indoors, with a blanket, by the fire instead. Haha.
