I love when the grill is up and running. Try these yummy turkey burgers next time you’re grilling. You’ll be glad you did!
Turkey Burgers with Tropical Salsa
1 pound of ground turkey
2 scallions, minced
¼ cup whole wheat bread crumbs
2 Tbsp minced celery
2 Tbsp salsa
¾ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp chili powder
½ peeled and cored fresh pineapple, chopped
2 kiwi, peeled and diced
1 scallion, sliced
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp grated lime zest
1 Tbsp lime juice
2 tsp diced pickled jalapeno peppers
2 whole wheat hamburger buns
4 lettuce leaves
Combine ground turkey, scallions, bread crumbs, celery, salsa, cumin and chili powder in a large bowl. Mix well. Form into four patties.
Prepare your grill and cook the patties on the grill until done, 5-6 minutes per side.
Meanwhile make the salsa. Stir together the pineapple, kiwi, scallions, cilantro, lime zest and lime juice in a medium bowl.
Place buns on each of four serving plates. Top each bun half with a lettuce leaf and a burger. Top evenly with salsa and enjoy!
