Apple-Turkey Burgers with Cranberry- Apple Salsa


What You Need

Cranberry-Apple Salsa:
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
3 sweet apples, peeled, cored, and chopped (about 2 cups)
1 cup whole cranberry sauce
1/2 cup scallions, finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Apple-Turkey Burgers:
1 lb. ground turkey
1 large apple, grated
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
cooking spray
4 2-ounce whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted 3 unpeeled apples, cored and diced


1) To prepare salsa, combine sugar, cider vinegar, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add half of the chopped apples stirring well; cover and reduce heat. Cook gently until apples are soft and mash with a potato masher until almost smooth. Add cranberry sauce to apple mixture and let cool slightly. Add the remaining apples, scallions, jalapenos, and cilantro if desired. Serve with Apple-Turkey Burgers. Refrigerate any remaining salsa for up to 3 days.

2) To prepare burgers, combine turkey, apple, salt, pepper, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a patty. Lightly coat a large skillet or grill pan with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Cook turkey burgers 6 to 8 minutes per side or until done. Serve on toasted buns with Cranberry-Apple Salsa.
