Summer Caprese Slider Board

The creamy fresh mozzarella cheese, melted on a garlic toasted bun, with juicy sweet tomatoes and fresh basil? The sliders are sublime!

Let’s just say, this summer, branch out and try something new! Try a new way of hosting, and invite some new neighbors or friends over, even if it’s scary.

This is fun—let guests make their own sliders!

TIP: Make sure the rolls are toasted ahead of time (best served warm so the cheese melts). DELISH!

I was reading in the most recent Magnolia Journal, from Joanna Gaines … “Trusting that instinct to move when we’re compelled, to try something that might scare us, in exchange for the thrill that may await on the other side, to invite courage over comfort—these are the very moments we set out to celebrate!”

She goes on to say that these past months, we all have learned so much about ourselves. That risk changes us, reality has shifted for us, and that most likely we are different people today.

I know I am.

Our parties are smaller. Our gatherings mean more to me than ever. Relationships are essential, and during these times we need each other more than we know.

“Risk can look like unearthing the courage to stay in place. It can mean daring to hold steady and keep space for people and things you care deeply for.”

Caprese Sliders (a small version of a sandwich), are so easy to whip up, and they’re even delicious left over! (In case you make too many, don’t worry, they are great heated up and will be devoured later!)

Can you substitute mozzarella for other cheese?

There’s nothing better than stringy, melted fresh mozzarella (my favorite), but Burrata is also amazing! Have you tried Burrata?

You can also try other white cheeses (thickly sliced), like provolone or Monterrey Jack, which will work in a pinch if you can’t run to the store.
