July Cookout – Turkey Burgers & Side Salads

July 9, 2010

Aunt Suzy says

For some reason we decided to grill on the July 5th “holiday” rather than on the 4th this year.  We made turkey burgers and three salads.  I was inspired by two recipes in the food section in our paper on Thursday – one of the salads was Moroccan.  It reminded me that many Moroccan meals consist of a grilled or roasted meat and several side salads.  Another salad recipe was for a bean salad with the suggestion of serving it as bruschetta.  I thought this could work as just a salad or bruschetta as recommended.   My plan was to make the these two salads to go with the turkey burgers.  Then, my upstairs neighbors called and asked if I wanted part of a watermelon.  I said yes, and I was off and running to make a watermelon salad that my friend Karen had told me was a “must make” a while back.  So here is our July 5th cookout menu – Whole Foods Santa Fe turkey burgers, White Bean- Asparagus-Mushroom Salad, Moroccan Grilled Pepper Salad, and Watermelon-Cucumber Salad wtih Feta.  (Just click on the salad name to go to the recipe.)  I recommend iced tea with mint and lemon or a dry French rose with this meal.
