Turkey Burgers & Potato Salad – A Quick Summer Dinner

These two very quick and easy recipes make up one of my favorite summertime meals!

Potato Salad

2 pounds of red skinned potatoes (you can substitute Yukon Gold if you prefer), chopped

1/2 yellow onion, minced

1/4 C canola oil mayonnaise

1 tbsp champagne vinegar

1 tsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp dried tarragon (or 1 tbsp fresh)

1 tsp dried oregano

salt & pepper to taste

Place potatoes in a large pot of boiling water; cook until tender, about 15 – 20 minutes.  Remove from heat, drain and let cool slightly.  Place potatoes in a large bowl and add minced onion, stir to combine.  While potatoes continue to cool, combine mayonnaise, vinegar and mustard in a small bowl.  Whisk until blended.  Add tarragon, oregano, salt and pepper, mix well.  Add dressing to potato mixture and stir to combine.  Chill for at least one hour before serving.

Chipotle Turkey Burgers

1 pound ground turkey

1/2 yellow onion, finely diced

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp ground chipotle chili pepper

dash cayenne pepper

1/4 c. cilantro, chopped

salt & pepper to taste

1 avocado, sliced

4 slices baby swiss cheese

Heat a grill to medium-high heat.  Place turkey through cilantro in a medium bowl,  mix until well combined.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Form into four patties. Place patties on pre-heated grill, cook 15-20 minutes, turning once, until done.  Top each with a slice of cheese and some sliced avocado; serve with condiments of your choice.
