The slugburger, like most great inventions, is a regional southern delicacy born from Depression-era necessity, but eat assured––it's free from garden-crawlers. Corinth, Mississippi, about 100 miles southeast of Memphis, Tennessee, celebrates the curiously-named sandwich beginning July 11 at the 26th Annual Slugburger Festival. Local pride for the slugburger is fervent, and for good reason: chances are, you've never seen a burger quite like this. --Sarah McColl, Shine staff

Corn and Poblano SalsaA quick and easy fresh salsa recipe is a wonderful compliment to a host of summertime dishes. And since homemade salsa is so versatile, home cooks can experiment with flavors to find the recipe they like best. One of my favorite ways to make salsa special is to grill some of the elements for smoky, complex flavors.Read More »from Hot Off the Cob! Make Spicy Grilled Corn and Poblano Pepper Salsa
This weekend, when Brian and I had the grill fired up, we threw on an extra ear of corn and a poblano pepper. After they were grilled to perfection, I let them cool and then wrapped them up in the fridge for a salsa recipe I was planning for the next day. The grilled corn was big on smoky sweetness and the poblano brought a mild, yet flavorful, spice to the dish. For ease, I mixed fresh tomatoes with canned, and loved how the two kinds of tomato melded together. Finally, I went the traditional route and finished the recipe off with a healthy dose of fresh-squeezed lime juice and minced cilantro. Summer salsa perfection!

What can possibly top biting into a slice of watermelon so juicy that it threatens to drip down your chin? Not much, but this ultrasimple salad is a strong contender. Watermelon's subtly floral sweetness complements mozzarella's mild creaminess, and cherry tomatoes' tang (try orange Sweet 100s if you can find them; they're as lovely as their name implies). Add a drizzle of oil, vinegar, and a sprinkle of salt to tie it all together, and the resulting salad is pretty darn perfect.
From Nicole Perry, POPSUGAR Food Watermelon Caprese Salad
1 pint cherry tomatoes, larger ones halved
About 2 cups of watermelon cut into 3/4-inch cubes
8 ounces bocconcini, halved
8-10 large basil leaves, chiffonaded
3/4-1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, or to taste
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, or to taste
- Add the tomatoes, watermelon, bocconcini, and basil to a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with
Source: Brie-ng on the Grill For a Cheesy Appetizer
Throwing a wheel of brie into the oven creates a delightfully oozy appetizer, but this recipe is a little out of the ordinary, because it calls for your brie wheel to be grilled. The cheese develops that same righteous runnyness with the added bonus of smoky char marks on the rind. Paired with grilled bread and a cherry-thyme relish, this recipe couldn't get any more Summer-appropriate.
If by the odd chance you end up with a smidgen of leftovers, store them in an airtight container and do as my family did, and divide the cheese and cherry relish on a bed of lightly-dressed arugula.
Adapted from Every Day With Rachael RayGrilled Brie With Cherry-Thyme Relish
If you plan to serve four or fewer, buy a wedge (in lieu of a wheel) of brie, then wrap the cheese in foil before you grill it to prevent the brie's insides from oozing onto the grill and burning.

flickr/ jonchiaThe McDonald's that we know and love, identified by those iconic Golden Arches, had humble beginnings. The restaurant first opened as McDonald's Bar-B-Q Restaurant in San Bernardino, Calif., in 1940, serving a simple menu of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, fries, and shakes. Over the next several years, founders Dick and Mac McDonald renovated the restaurant and highlighted their $0.15 hamburger.

Today, McDonald's is the largest hamburger fast-food chain in the world, and serves more than 58 million customers daily. While McDonald's continues to have a set staple menu throughout most of their locations, the chain is continuously trying to invent both local, national and international menu items to bolster its offerings.
