- 10 ounces ground turkey
- Fresh cilantro
- 3 ounces Savoy cabbage
- 1 lime
- 3 ounces shredded carrots
- 1 head baby iceberg lettuce
- 1 Roma tomato
- 1 cucumber
- 1 avocado
- Cuban mojo (lime juice - orange juice - olive oil - yellow onion - dried Mexican oregano - fresh garlic - Aleppo chile flakes - cumin - salt)
Spanish for “sauce,” a traditional mojo includes citrus for tang, ground cumin for savoriness, garlic for pungency, and more. It’s so packed with flavor, it’s no wonder it can play so many roles: as a marinade, baste, or sauce. Use any leftover avocado-mojo sauce as a dip for carrot sticks and other vegetables.
Prep the turkey burgers
- Cut a small corner from the ground turkey packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for the slaw.
Cook the burgers
While the burgers cook, prepare the rest of the meal.
Make the cabbage slaw
- Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
- Juice the lime.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Trim the root end from the iceberg lettuce; separate the leaves.
- Cut away the core from the tomato; cut the tomato crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices.
- Cut the cucumber in half; set aside half for another use. Peel the cucumber half, if desired, and trim off the end; cut the cucumber crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices.
- Cut the avocado in half; remove the pit and scoop out the flesh.
