Wash produce before use
Prep the turkey burgers
- Cut a small corner from the ground turkey packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
- Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ½ cup.
- Zest the limes.
- Juice the limes. Set aside the juice for the cucumber-mint salad.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
Cook the burgers
While the burgers cook, prepare the rest of the meal.
Make the cucumber-mint salad
- Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim off the ends; cut the cucumber on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
- Trim the ends from the radishes; thinly slice the radishes.
- Strip the mint leaves from their stems; coarsely tear the leaves.
Prep the toppings and lettuce; toast the buns
- In a small bowl, stir together the mayo and as much sambal oelek as you like.
- Cut away the cores from the tomatoes; thinly slice the tomatoes.
- Cut the avocados in half. Remove the pits, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ¼-inch-thick slices.
- Trim the root end from the butter lettuce; separate as many larger leaves as desired (paleo-strict diners can build their burgers on lettuce leaves instead of buns).
- Juice the limes.
- Strip and tear the mint leaves.
- Toss the cucumber-mint salad.
- Stir together the mayo and sambal oelek, if using.
- Separate the lettuce leaves.
