Salsa Verde Turkey Burgers and Southwest Sweet Potato Salad Recipes -

Craving a burger but want something a little different? Tonight I was and I made Salsa Verde Turkey Burgers with Southwest Sweet Potato Salad. It was gooooo-ooooood!

Turkey burgers, when done properly, are really a favorite of mine. Hubby tolerates them, but always prefers beef. You could make this with any kind of ground meat that you wanted, but I think turkey or chicken is your best bet. The lightness of the ground turkey easily takes on, but is not overpowered, by the salsa verde you mix into it.

Originally I thought of doing sweet potato fries, but I know Hubby does not like those (I don’t know what is wrong with him LOL). He does love potato salads though so I thought I would try a sweet potato salad for a twist. We love grilled sweet potatoes with a cilantro and lime vinaigrette and so those are the same flavors I was working with for this salad. I served it cold, but if you like warm potato salad you could easily do that as well.

Do you think you will try either of these recipes? What changes, if any, would you make?

I really like this sweet potato salad recipe; it seems much more exciting than ordinary potato salad.

Yes, very different, and actually a lot healthier since no mayo and such, in this potato salad

I never thought about using Sweet potatoes in making a potato salad, but it sounds different and amazing. I also love having me food have a lot of flavor, and the Salsa Verde Burgers look so delicious. I am going to try making these recipes.

So I was looking around for a post to comment on and the hubs noticed the title of this one and said, “You’re going to make that this weekend.. .right?!” So I guess this is really more his comment. YUM. MAKE. THIS.

I love TURKEY burgers! It is super rare to have turkey burgers because hubby to prefers beef but I will make him eat the turkey for this recipe. We would probably change the sweet potatoe into regular potatoes because we dont have any sweet potatoe fans here.

My hubby is not a huge fan of turkey burgers either, but he tolerates them occasionally.

This looks so good! im not much of a cooker but lately I’ve wanted to. Hahah!

14 Robyn Wright June 23, 2015 at 1:33 pm
