Here's a taste of Vietnam in an American favorite. Serve with grilled corn and peppers for a marvelous meal.

Ingredients

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

packaged coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)

1 cup(s)

English cucumber(s)

¼ cup(s), julienned or sliced super thin

fresh lime juice

1 Tbsp, or to taste

kosher salt

¼ tsp

uncooked 93% lean ground turkey

1 pound(s)

cilantro

2 Tbsp, fresh, finely chopped

low sodium soy sauce

1 Tbsp

ginger root

1 Tbsp, grated or finely chopped

garlic clove(s)

2 medium clove(s), finely chopped

reduced calorie mayonnaise

4 tsp

chili sauce

1 tsp, sweet variety

light English muffin

4 item(s), toasted

Instructions

  1. Coat a large griddle, outdoor grill rack or stovetop grill pan with cooking spray; preheat to medium-high.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine slaw mix, cucumber, lime juice and salt; toss to coat and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine turkey, cilantro, soy sauce, ginger and garlic; divide mixture into four balls and then gently press each one into a 4-inch patty.
  4. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and chili sauce.
  5. Grill or broil patties until internal temperature of burgers reaches 165°F, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  6. Spread half of each English muffin with 1 1/4 teaspoon chili-mayonnaise; top with a burger, a scant 1/3 cup slaw mixture and a muffin top. Yields 1 burger per serving.

Notes

The slaw that tops these burgers is quite basic. For added flavor, add some seasoned rice wine vinegar, minced cilantro, hot chili oil or hot sauce (could affect SmartPoints value).
