July 4this all about fun, community, celebration and grilling up goodies for everyone. We’ve got a veggie slider that is:
- Super Delicious
- Easy to make
- Can be prepped ahead of time
- Can be doubled and frozen
And a slider that everyone will LOVE! And we’ll toss up an easy slaw to top the slider or serve up as a super side.
We toasted our slider with a glass of juicy fruit forward Cotes du Rhone – a wine from the Southern Rhone made from Grenache – a light red that can be served chilled and refreshing on a warm summer evening. You can find a simple and yummy Cotes du Rhone in your local grocery store
