Turkey burgers make a great low-fat alternative to beef. Let guests choose their own topping: Cucumber Ranch Sauce or Spicy Peach Salsa (or both!).
- 2 lbs ground turkey
- ½ tsp ground pepper
- 1 ½ cups crumbled feta cheese
- 8 onion rolls, split
- 1 red onion
- Cucumber Ranch Sauce (see our recipe)
- Spicy Peach Salsa (see our recipe)
- 2 cups watercress
- In a large bowl, mix ground turkey with ground pepper and 1 cup feta cheese. Season with salt. Shape into 8 patties.
- Preheat grill to medium heat. Grill burgers 6–8 min. per side or until internal temperature reaches 165ºF.
- While burgers cook, toast onion rolls on edges of grill until warm, and thinly slice red onion.
- To assemble burgers, spread 2 tbsp Cucumber Ranch Sauce on 4 of the roll halves. Spread 2 tbsp Spicy Peach Salsa on the other 4 roll halves. Top 4 rolls with a little watercress, some onion slices, a burger, 1 tbsp feta cheese, and remaining roll top. Serve immediately.
Spicy Peach Salsa
