Fresh From the Garden Sliders

When I saw this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens, I knew I had to try it as soon as the garden started producing.  I grilled some of the yellow zucchini slices briefly on a grill pan, and I tried some with the raw squash.  Equally as good.

Instead of Italian seasoning, I used Tuscan Sunset from Penzey's, which is one of my favorite salt-free seasoning blends.  The garlicky white bean spread was delicious with crunch of the cucumber, and the juicy tomato.  The soft baguette slices helped hold it all together.  I considered toasting the bread, but I like it better with the bread untoasted.  

I finished some with cornichons, and some with a grape tomato half.  

Don't want to make them yourself?  Then come to the Cleveland Wine School's Cellar Door tasting room this Friday and Saturday, July 10th and 11th, where I will be preparing these, along with 3 other plates.  You can taste 8 wines for only $15, and for an additional $10, enjoy the food pairings.  Hope to see you there!
