Yum, yum, yum! Very tasty turkey burger that at first bite it stimulated and awakened our taste buds. The sauce is especially good on the burger and for that matter good on its own, as I had no problem dipping my finger into the sauce for a proper taste-check. A definite make again for sure! Thank you BusyMiz for this addition to my keeper recipe files.

Another winner. Some turkey burgers can be boring - not this one. Great sauce. I would also love this sauce on lamb. Lovely texture in the burger. Another do again - The sauce mellows letting it sit for several hours in the fridge..17 Jan15 Made again and enjoyed just as much. The lemon-mint aiolo is especially nice.
