Whisk buttermilk, mayonnaise, lime juice, cumin, and cayenne in medium bowl

Cook potatoes in large pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 20
minutes. Drain; cool.

Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes. Place potatoes in large bowl; add corn,

potato mixture; toss to coat. Season generously with salt. (Can be made 4
hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) Gently stir in avocado and serve.

Comments: A bold medley of cumin, cayenne, corn, and cilantro ups the
flavor here. Great with grilled-fish tacos, steak fajitas, or
chipotle-rubbed chicken.

Test-Kitchen Tip: Pitting an avocado - Cut an unpeeled avocado in half
lengthwise. Grasp both sides and twist to open. Tap a large knife into
the pit so it sticks, then twist the knife to loosen and remove the pit.
