Caribbean Turkey Burgers with Tropical Salsa

Here I am once again asking my self, "What's for dinner tonight that "I" can eat as well?"

Well, the answer to that my friends would be a burger. My kids love bbq'ing so I thought of a turkey burger would be nice to try on the bbq instead of that fatty ground beef burgers we use to get.

I love looking through the Shape magazine not just for my works ad in there, which is (sorry had to plug it in there) but for the awesome recipes they have.

I found this one for a great turkey burger.
