Green Tomato Salsa Burger


For a few brief days Spring came to visit and I took full advantage of cooking warm-weather foods and buying warm-weather produce. Like burgers and green tomatoes. Hence this recipe!

for the green tomato salsa:
1 green tomato, diced
1 red tomato, diced
juice of 2 limes
1/2 a jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp. of sugar
pinch of kosher salt
for the burgers:
1 pound ground beef
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
pinch each of salt and pepper
to assemble:
4 slices cheddar cheese
1/2 cup prepared guacamole
burger buns

1. Prepare the salsa by combining all the ingredients together in a medium bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
2. Preheat a grill. Meanwhile combine burger ingredients together a medium bowl and form into 4 patties. Grill burgers for 5-7 minutes or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Melt cheese on top.
2. Spread prepared guacamole on the bottom of each bun. Place the burger on top, followed by a heaping tablespoon of the green tomato salsa. Top with the bun.

I went a little too heavy-handed with the guacamole on these burgers and that took away from the salsa flavor a little bit, but I still found these to be awesome and the perfect burger for summer!
