[receipe] herban sliders + spring citrus salad

Slide into summer with my herban sliders + spring citrus salad! Both the meat-full and meat-free versions of the sliders are out of
this world, and the tahini yogurt dressing drizzled overtop is one of my favorite go-to’s when I am pressed for time.

If you have any extra fennel fronds, consider reserving them to add to soups, stocks or dressings for a flavorful punch!
