  • Heat grill to medium-high; lightly oil grates. In a medium bowl, combine zucchini, onion, lime juice, and oil; season with salt and pepper. Let zucchini salad marinate at room temperature, 15 minutes (or refrigerate, up to 1 day).

  • Form turkey into 4 patties (4 inches each). Using thumb, make an indentation in center to prevent burgers from rounding on top. Sprinkle with chili powder; season with salt and pepper. Cover and grill until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of a burger reads 155 degrees, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

  • Top burgers with cheese. Cover and continue to grill until cheese has melted and internal temperature reaches 165, 2 to 4 minutes more. Meanwhile, grill bread until lightly charred. Place each burger on a piece of bread; top with avocado slices, salsa, if using, and remaining bread. Serve burgers with zucchini salad.

We only made the turkey burgers, but they were amazing. Flavorful and easy to make! Just the way I like it. The leftovers also made a yummy lunch the following day.

Excellent. Wasn't sure about the zucchini salad, but it was the perfect taste juxtaposition to the turkey.
