    Lemon-Basil Mayonnaise


    • 1 lb fresh tuna steak, trimmed and ground
    • 1/4 large red bell pepper, finely chopped
    • 1 whole green onion, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons Chardonnay wine
    • 1 tablespoon horseradish mustard
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
    • 1/3-1/2 cup dried plain breadcrumbs
    • 4 hamburger buns with sesame seeds, split
    • 4 slices mozzarella cheese or 4 slices provolone cheese
    • 2 (6 ounce) jars marinated artichoke hearts, drained well on paper towels and cut into small pieces
    • mixed baby greens


    1. 1
      Make the mayonnaise: combine all ingredients in a small bowl; mix well; cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before using to allow flavors to blend.
    2. 2
      Prepare a med-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover or preheat a gas grill to med-high.
    3. 3
      Make the patties: combine the tuna, bell pepper, onion, Chardonnay, mustard, olive oil, and seasoned salt in a bowl.
    4. 4
      Handling tuna as little as possible to prevent compacting it, mix well, adding just enough bread crumbs to hold the mixture together.
    5. 5
      Divide mixture into 4 equal portions; form portions into patties to fit the buns.
    6. 6
      When grill is ready, brush grill rack with vegetable oil; place patties on the rack; cover and cook, turning once, until done to preference, 3-4 minutes on each side for med-rare.
    7. 7
      During the last few minutes of cooking, place the buns, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly.
    8. 8
      During last minute of cooking, place 1 slice of cheese on each patty to melt.
    9. 9
      To assemble: spread mayonnaise over the cut sides of the buns; on each bun bottom, place an equal portion of the artichoke hearts, a few greens, and a patty; add the bun tops and serve.
