Recipe Details

12pk King’s Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

Medley of Seasonal Summer Vegetables – Tri-Color Peppers, Zucchini, Asparagus, Portobello Mushrooms

Medley of Fixings – Yellow Beets, Heirloom Tomatoes, Sprouts, Butter Lettuce, Watermelon Radish

Mixture of Aromatics – Thai Basil and Mint

Lemon Dill Goat Cheese - see recipe below

CHIMICHURRI - see recipe below

10 Cloves Garlic (Peeled)

1/2 Cup Red Wine Vinegar

1 tsp Granulated Garlic

1 tsp Salt

2 Tbsp Whole Grain Mustard

1 Bunch Basil

1 Bunch Italian Parsley

2 Bunches Cilantro

Juice of 6 Lemons

1.5-2 Cups EVOO


1 10 Ounce Goat Cheese Log

Zest of 2 Lemons

¼ Cup Finely Chopped Dill

Step 1
Get the grill going and gather your medley of summer veggies. Prep the veggies by making ½ in slices - thick enough to get a good char and withhold bite. Toss in extra virgin olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper before grilling. A slight char on each side is all that’s needed with summer fresh veggies. Remove from the grill and place aside to assembly.
Step 2
Rinse, prepare and slice your fixings.
Step 3
Split your King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls open and start creating. Layer a mixture of grilled veggies with crisp fresh fixings - a layer thai basil and mint add an unexpected burst of flavor. Don’t be afraid to add a good helping of goat cheese to both the top and bottom halves of the roll; this will help stabilize the veggie stack when in place.
Step 4
Before closing up your slider, this is the time to add your chimichurri; Pour an extra side of this to accompany the sliders - you’ll be grateful you did when you make your first dunk into it.
Step 5
The island flavors of Shaka Tea pair perfectly with any medley you choose so have fun and try a different pairing with each new slider creation. Happy Summering!

Step 6
In a food processor add garlic and pulse to combine. Add red wine vinegar. Pulse a few times. Next add the granulated garlic and salt. Next whole grain mustard.
Step 7
Add the herb bunches but tear away the stem portions by twisting. Pulse each type of herb one by one adding extra virgin olive oil to keep the mix moving. Add lemon juice and the remaining EVOO till combined.

Step 8
In a mixing bowl add goat cheese, zest and dill. Toss & crumble to combine. Set aside. For the sliders it’s nice to get to a room temp consistency to spread on the rolls.

Chef Nicole Scharer says:

There’s nothing better than veggies at their summertime peak, especially when paired with King’s Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Rolls and an ice-cold Shaka Tea. Create a slider station at home and get creative with your medley; mixing root vegetables with aromatics and a signature Chimichurri that you’ll never want to go without. Then kick your feet up and taste those island vibes.
