  • 1/2 pound chopped mushroom mix (oyster, portabella, cremini)
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mediterranean sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh milled pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs (binding agent)
  • applewood rub

Salad Mixture:

  • 12 ounces baby mixed greens
  • a handful of arugula
  • 1 cup kale/red cabbage mixture (dino kale, green onions, red cabbage, green cabbage)
  • 1 peach, diced
  • 1 large avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 2 large roma tomatoes, one diced and the other sliced into circles then half pieces
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup roasted corn (fresh or store-bought, frozen)
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons shaved manchego
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic glaze
  • chipotle dressing

Chop mushrooms on a cutting board or in a food processor. Using a frying pan, warm the olive oil over medium heat and then add in the chopped mushroom mixture. Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste. Saute for 5-7 minutes, remove mushrooms from heat and set aside (5-7 minutes to cool.) Reserve two tablespoons of mixture for later, then put the rest in a large mixing bowl.

Preheat air fryer to 350° F. While the air fryer is preheating, create sliders. Add ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic, and breadcrumbs to mixing bowl with mushrooms. Mix really well and form 6-8 small sliders. Add applewood rub to the top of each slider.

Air fry sliders one at a time for 8-12 minutes each (depending on your preference of rare to well-cooked.) While these are cooking, begin salad preparation.

Layer a large serving platter with baby mixed greens, next scatter arugula. Add dino kale/red cabbage mix. Next, around the interior of the bowl, surround lettuce bed with the 1/2 slices of tomato all the way around.

Add sliders. Place sliders down the middle of the salad, layering them upon one another until you go end-to-end on the bowl. Now, start adding the veggies. Peaches, avocado, tomato, red onion, corn, cucumber, then shaved cheese. Last, drizzle the burgers with chipotle dressing and the lettuce mixture with balsamic drizzle. Serve family-style, with large serving ware and bowls.

peach almond strudel

Peaches and Almond Cream Braided Strudel

Thank you to Dana Vento for giving us permission to use this recipe! Follow her on Instagram at @danadvee to see how she’s feelin’ peachy this season.

  • 1 block cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons almond flavoring
  • 1 tsp vanilla flavoring
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 unbaked pie crust
  • 5 peaches, rinsed/uniformly sliced with skin on
  • confectioners sugar

Combine 1 egg yolk and 2 tablespoons of water, whisk well and set aside.

Combine, cream cheese, 1/2 cup white sugar, almond flavoring, vanilla flavoring, and remaining egg yolk and blend until smooth. Place peaches in separate bowl and dust with remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Set aside.

Unroll pie crust, and roll out on a smooth surface into a really large oval. On other side’s exterior, slice into crust about 1/3 of the way into the middle. Repeat and keep strips at ~1″ intervals to be braided later.

Take 3 large tablespoons of the almond cream cheese filling, place in center of pie crust, avoiding the cuts. Use spoon to swirl and cover middle surface area. Remove peaches and cover the cream surface, allowing peaches to overlap. Alternating left to right, pull pie strips across the filling to form a braid. Pinch ends.

Before baking, brush strudel with the whisked egg wash. Bake at 375°F for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool, dust with confectioners sugar, and serve.
