Crispy: Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps
Inspired by Momofuku chef David Chang's Korean bo ssäm pork, these deliver crunch and succulence, all in one bite.
Juicy: Chile-Lime Watermelon Wedges
A dusting of smoky chile powder, earthy cumin, zingy lime rind, and a hit of salt turns watermelon's flavor up to 11.
Sticky: Red, White, and Blue Pops
Nothing says warmer weather better than a fruity, frosty pop that melts in your mouth. Keep the layers distinct by fully freezing each one before adding the next.
Cheesy: Grilled and Dilled Corn on the Cob
Here's a riff on elote, Mexican street corn. We love how sweet dill plays of the richly caramelized corn and briny cheese.
Saucy: Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks
Finger-stickin' good: grilled drumsticks slathered in tangy, spicy Buffalo sauce. Bibs and Wet-Naps recommended.
Messy: Boiled Shrimp with Tangy Cocktail Sauce
Finger food with a Chesapeake accent. A hefty pile of horseradish in the sauce will bring tears of joy to your eyes.
