Turkey-Feta Burgers with Grilled Nectarine and Arugula Salad

Turkey-Feta Burgers and Grilled Red Onions and Peppers
1 Pound lean ground turkey
1/3 Cup (packed) crumbled feta cheese
1 TSP dried oregano
1/2 TSP salt
1/2 TSP ground black pepper
Nonstick vegetable oil spray
1/2 Red onion, peeled, each cut crosswise into thick slices
1 Cubanelle pepper sliced crosswise
Whole wheat hamburger buns

Grilled Nectarine and Arugula Salad with Balsamic Dressing
Package of arugula
2 Nectarines
Salt and Pepper to taste
Balsamic vinegar

We've consumed our fair share of hamburgers and cheeseburgers this summer, but grilling season is far from over! I'm putting a Greek twist on these turkey burgers. One would expect to serve a Greek salad with this, but I'm going to switch it up a bit. I love mixing savory and sweet, so I was smitten with a grilled peach and arugula salad recipe I found. I'm going to use nectarines instead, and pair with a balsamic dressing.

For the burgers combine the turkey, feta and seasonings in a bowl and form into patties. Set aside while grill heats up. Quarter the nectarines and slice the red onion and cubanelle pepper. Throw on hot grill until charred and softened. Set aside and keep warm. Cook turkey patties on the hot grill for about 4 minutes per side. Grill the hamburger buns for a minute or two. Toss arugula with balsamic vinegar and EVOO, top with grilled nectarines and salt and pepper. Assemble burgers with grilled onions and peppers.

And what would a burger be without pickles? So we served up with some hot & sour pickles we picked up at the farmers market last weekend. I recommend you enjoy this dinner al fresco if possible!
