2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Marinate the onion

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
In a medium bowl, combine the onion and sherry vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the basil mayo and the burgers.


Make the basil mayo

  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate (the juice will be divided between the basil mayo and the bean salad).
In a small bowl, stir together the mayo, basil, lemon zest, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Make the 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.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey and garlic. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix gently until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into four [eight] ½-inch-thick patties.


Make the bean salad; prep the red peppers

  • Rinse the black beans.
  • Trim the root end from the endive; cut the endive in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-wide strips.
  • Trim the root end from the butter lettuce; remove the largest outer leaves and set aside for the burgers (1 or 2 leaves per slider). Cut the remaining lettuce in half lengthwise, then crosswise into thin strips.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Set aside enough onion slices to garnish the burgers, shaking off any excess vinegar. Measure ½ cup [1 cup] remaining onion along with the vinegar for the salad. Save any remaining onion for another use.
  • Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers. Set aside for serving.
In a large bowl, toss together the beans, endive, butter lettuce strips, parsley, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] olive oil, and the ½ cup [1 cup] onion and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Cook the burgers

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the patties and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.


Transfer the butter lettuce leaves to individual plates. Top each leaf with the roasted red peppers, onion slices, a burger, and 1 teaspoon basil mayo. Serve the remaining mayo and the bean salad on the side.
