Number of Servings: 4


    2 c finely shredded savoy cabbage, 7-8 oz
    1 c fresh tomato salsa, drained
    1/4 c finely chopped fresh cilantro
    3 Tbsp sour cream
    1 1/2 lb ground turkey
    1/3 c fresh corn kernels
    1/4 c finely chopped drained pickled jalapeno peppers
    1 Tbsp chili powder
    2 tsp minced garlic
    1 tsp kosher salt
    1 tsp ground cumin
    4 Whole grain buns


-The buns I used were Nature's Own 100% whole wheat sandwich rolls at 130 calories each.
-Use 97% fat free turkey.


1. In a medium bowl, mix cabbage, salsa, cilantro and sour cream. Cover and refrigerate. Stir; drain well just before serving.
2. Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350-450 degree). In a large bowl, gently mix turkey, corn, jalapeno, chili powder, garlic, salt and cumin; shape into 4 patties, each about 3/4" thick. With thumb or back of spoon, make shallow indentation about 1" wide in center of each patty so centers are about 1/2"thick. (This helps patties cook evenly and prevents them from puffing on grill.)
3. Grill patties over direct heat, with lid closed as much as possible, until no longer pink in centers but still juicy, 10-15 minutes, turning once. During last minute of cooking time, lightly toast cut sides of buns over direct heat. Top patties with slaw; serve on toasted buns.
