Summer Squash Salad Sliders

Jon Wolf of The Terrace on Peachtree at The Ellis Hotel demoed this recipe at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market five years ago. It’s such a nice idea – raw, chopped vegetables as a slider – that I’m resurrecting it here. You could serve this as a simple salad as well, but it’s kind of fun to surprise people with a vegetable sandwich.

Layered Vegetable Torte

This one takes its inspiration from the New York Times. It will use the eggplant, squash, peppers, tomato, onion and garlic. There are a million vegetable torte ideas out there. I like this one right now because it calls for grilling the vegetables. That’s a way to keep the heat out of the kitchen as much as possible. And adds another layer of flavors to the dish.
