  • The Spinach Turkey Burger >>>
  • Frozen spinach - 8-10 oz package
  • Green onion - ½ bunch
  • Italian seasoning -1 teaspoon
  • Salt - ½ teaspoon
  • Oil - 1 tablespoon
  • Ground turkey - 1lb (93% lean)
  • Strawberry Salad >>>
  • Strawberries - 1 pint
  • Arugula - 2-3 oz (or your favorite leafy green)
  • Olive oil - 3 tablespoons
  • Balsamic Vinegar - 1 tablespoon
  • Honey - 1 teaspoon


  1. Prepare the turkey burger patties by first defrosting the frozen spinach. Drain the spinach and place them into a large mixing bowl.
  2. While the spinach is defrosting, add the italian seasoning, salt, and ground turkey to the bowl of spinach. Mix with your hands until combined.
  3. Either grill or pan fry the burgers. For pan frying, spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and turn the heat to medium-high.
  4. Form the patties using a 1/4 cup measuring cup and scooping the turkey mixture out of the bowl and onto the pan. Flatten the patties with your hand and cook each burger for 5 minutes. Flip, and cook for another 5 minutes (or until the burger is cooked).
  5. While the burgers are cooking, make the strawberry salad. Slice the strawberries. Put ¼ cup of strawberries off to the side and add the rest to a large bowl. Add the arugula, and the rest of the green onions to the bowl.
  6. Add the ¼ cup of strawberries, olive oil, vinegar, honey, and salt to a blender and blend until smooth. Add the dressing to the bowl of strawberries and green and toss until combined.
