Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the salsa: combine all the salsa ingredients in a bowl; mix well; cover and set aside to let flavors blend.
  2. Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to med-high.
  3. To make the patties: combine the sausage, turkey, olives, dried plums, basil, parsley, and Zinfandel in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well.
  5. Divide the mixture into 6 portions; form each portion into a patty to fit the rolls.
  6. When the grill is ready, brush grill rack with vegetable oil; place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, 4 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
  7. During the last few minutes of cooking, place the rolls, cut side down, around the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly.
  8. To assemble: place a patty on each roll bottom; top with a spoonful of salsa; add roll tops and serve.
