Summer Squash Sourdough Sliders with Grilled White Peaches and Homemade Pickles

One of my favorite things to do on those rare lazy Sundays is to turn on the grill. This is a super easy meal that's so filling I didn't even get to the second slider!

The peach is just a white peach quartered and grilled. Choose a peach on the firmer side or it will fall apart. The peach will also take less time than the squash, so throw it on the fire about halfway through cooking the squash.

The homemade pickles are also easy! Just slice a Persian cucumber into coins and pour plain rice vinegar over them. I do this before prepping and cooking. Before serving, drain the liquid off the cukes.

Summer Squash Sliders

Small Globe Squash
Dried Basil
Bragg's Liquid Amino Acid
Garlic Powder
Sea Salt
Small Heirloom Tomato
Two Whole Wheat Sourdough Rolls

Slice squash into discs about 1/4 inch thick. Lay flat on a plate. Spritz with Bragg's ad sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and dried basil pieces. Flip squash over and repeat.

Spray grill with cooking spray. Turn on to medium-high heat. Lay squash slices on grill and cook for about 8-10 minutes flipping once. Keep an eye on them because cooking time will vary with the heat of the grill and your desired doneness.

While squash is cooking, slice tomato into thin slices. Slice rolls in half and layer one half with tomatoes. Add cooked squash and serve.


If you are counting points on WW, the only points will come from the rolls you choose.

This really does sound easy and super fresh. Perfect for that in-between-summer and fall season! :)


I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
