Al Fresco Summer Slider Recipe

May, 2013 · By Coryanne Ettiene

As the weather heats up, our dishes get lighter to match the spirit of those festive summer days. And while many of us fire up the BBQ to embrace the spirit of outdoor entertaining, it is easy to forget that with a little creativity, you can skip the BBQ and enjoy the taste of summer straight from the oven.  This time of year, my favorite summer lunch is an Al Fresco slider, capturing the taste of an Italian summer holiday, but wrapped up as an American summer favorite.

I feel almost guilty sharing this recipe, it is a summer pleasure that takes 20 minutes from craving to tasting……due in great part by having the  Alexia Foods Artisan Ciabatta Roll and Organic Yukon Select french fries in my freezer always on hand for when the I fancy something simple yet decadent.  The combination of fluffy rosemary rolls, tangy pepper relish, creamy mozzarella cheese and spicy salami served with salty fries is enough to stop time, leave your longing for a second helping and wishing you had lunch like this everyday…so make plenty darlings, because they are irresistibly good.
