Sometimes turkey can be a bit dry because of its low-fat content. In this recipe, the sauteed onion and red pepper in the burger and the salsa on top of the burger make up for any dryness in the turkey. This low-fat recipe is really delicious and satisfying.

This is an excellent flavor combination. My husband gave it his "make this one again" seal of approval. I added some yellow bell pepper to the corn salsa as well as teh burgers, I didn't have red on hand. Otherwise I followed the recipe to the letter and everyone was thrilled. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
