Summer Party Appetizer: Salmon Sliders Recipe

Who doesn’t love a good recipe for sliders? Over the past few years, these bite-size sandwiches have become a summer staple at get-togethers everywhere. They’re easy to prepare for a crowd and they can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.

For our new slider recipe, we used budget-friendly canned salmon that’s been seasoned to perfection with dill, red bell pepper and onions on a sweet Hawaiian roll and – oh, my gosh, our mouths are watering just thinking about it. From backyard pool parties to summer soirees, we guarantee this recipe will be a crowd-pleaser!

Party tip: Set up a condiment bar full of all your favorite fixings and let your guests B.Y.O.S (Build Your Own Slider). We’d recommend the classics – tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, and mustard—but let your imagination run wild. Summer might be ending soon, but your creative combinations don’t have to.
