Before we talk about this tasty turkey burger recipe, it’s time to announce the winners of last week’s Ball Canning Supplies giveaway.

Now that we’ve gotten business out of the way, let’s talk about today’s turkey burgers with fresh corn salad.
I live in farm country, so needless to say, this time of year corn is abundant.
You’ll find it on the grill getting a lovely char, but just as often you’ll find it in fresh salads, scraped right off the cob. (Be sure to scrape your kernels off the cob on top of a towel, or you’ll find corn all over your kitchen days later. )
I didn’t stop at fresh corn for my salad, after all, zucchini and basil are at every farmers market I pass by. Doesn’t this look like a healthy summer salad?
I think corn and turkey are a match made in heaven, so I served my fresh corn salad with Italian turkey burgers on the side. My local grocer makes it easy to build a flavorful burger thanks to packages of pre-seasoned ground turkey.
There you are! A healthy summer meal in under thirty minutes – you can’t beat that!
Happy, healthy cooking!
Shake It Up!
No ground turkey on hand? Lean ground chicken or beef would work just as well.
No fresh corn on hand? You could use frozen corn, just be sure to pick a quality variety with large kernels.
- 16 ounces Italian ground turkey
- ⅓ cup panko bread crumbs
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
- 2 ½ cups zucchini, chopped
- 16 ea grape tomatoes, halved
- 3 ear corn , kernels scraped from the cob
- 1 cup basil, loosely packed, then chopped
- 1 medium roasted red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- ½ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
- Combine turkey, Panko and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese in a bowl. Divide into quarters and form into patties.
- Preheat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add patties, leaving room in-between and cook for 4 - 5 minutes per side until patties are no longer pink in the middle. Don't overcook or patties will be dry. Take off the heat a minute before you think they're done and they'll continue to cook until done.
- Combine remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl and chill while burgers cook, then serve with burgers.
