Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

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 burgers.

2

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.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro. Set aside half for the aioli.
In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey and half the cilantro. 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.

3

Prep the peppers and aioli; make the bean salad

  • Rinse the black beans.
  • Trim the root end from the endive; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Trim the root end from the 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 thinly slice crosswise.
  • Set aside enough marinated onion slices to garnish the burgers, shaking off any excess vinegar. Measure ½ cup [1 cup] remaining marinated onion along with the vinegar for the salad. Save any remaining onion for another use.
  • Scrape off any seeds from the piquillo peppers; thinly slice the peppers. Set aside for serving.
In a small bowl, stir together the lemon aioli and remaining cilantro; season to taste with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, toss together the beans, endive, sliced lettuce, 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil, and the ½ cup [1 cup] onion and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4

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.

Serve

Transfer the lettuce leaves to individual plates. Top each leaf with the piquillo peppers, marinated onion slices, a burger, and 1 teaspoon lemon aioli. Serve the bean salad and remaining aioli on the side.
