Summer Turkey Berry Salad

We have been having salad for dinner every night to avoid using the oven.  It is so easy and so filling!

I really liked this combo and it was so colorful.  One of the kids even suggested I take a photo because it was so pretty:)

Turkey Burgers:

{Keep in mind; these are Banmanland proportions}

2 pounds ground turkey
3/4 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup pesto

{sometimes I don't have pesto.  These taste great with Mexican flavours as well; cumin, chili powder, garlic, onion...}

Smoosh it all together, make patties, sprinkle with salt and pepper, cook on medium high in a pan.
{I know, I said I wasn't using the oven/stove but this part can be done in the morning before it gets hot!!  Keep the burgers in the fridge.}

{This is flexible.  You can make this salad 1000 different ways!}

lettuce {anything but iceburg}
red pepper
sunflower seeds{or almonds or pecans or walnuts}
green onions

Looks yummy! What dressing do you use with this one? Or do you use the pesto as your dressing? Love mixing in berries in the summer :)

Nice to meet you Risa:) Holly- I used a coconut balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing. This can easily be made by adding a few drops of coconut flavor to olive oil and vinegar. Be sure to look for balsamic vinegar that does not contain sulphites!!
