Featured Chef Alison Marras offers up a tasty slider recipe with a Mediterranean twist. Give these Greek Sliders a try and make sure to include the Avocado Tzatziki sauce and her AIP English Muffins for the full experience. This recipe allows you to be flexible with your ground meat choices. Try it once with grass-fed beef, then change it up and use ground lamb or bison for an altogether different flavor profile.
