Grilled Turkey Burgers with Broccoli Salad

The bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables at Farmer’s Markets and Produce Stands makes it easy to select healthy and flavorful side dishes to accompany the sizzling steaks, chicken, and burgers of Summer and Fall months.  Grilled Turkey Burgers are a terrific departure from beef, and Broccoli Slaws are popular in our home and office.  They tote well, last a long time and improve with a day or two in the fridge, but try to banish the mayonnaise and sugar coated version of this salad from your picnic table, and try this lighter, flavorful version courtesy of Green Mountain at Fox Run in Vermont.
