Turkey Burgers

I love when the weather gets warm enough to start grilling again.  I recieved this Skinny Taste Cookbook for Christmas last year and after flipping through it, this was one of the first recipes I knew I wanted to try.  Let’s just say, it did not disappoint.  The zucchini keeps the burgers perfectly moist and the flavor is incredible! I always double or triple the dressing and I serve the burger over the salad with a little feta. Add a glass of of your favorite Rosé and it’s the perfect meal!
