Turkey Burgers with Mango Salsa

Makes 6 servings

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

1/3 cup reduced-fat garlic-herb spreadable cheese

2 green onions, chopped

41/2 teaspoons lemon juice

11/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dry thyme

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

11/2 pounds lean ground turkey

6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split

3/4 cup premade mango salsa

In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties.

Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 inches from the heat for 4 to 6 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer reads 165 F and juices run clear.

Grill buns, uncovered, for 1 to 2 minutes or until toasted. Place burgers on bun bottoms. Top with salsa. Replace bun tops.
